"El Campo": Educational Attainment and Educational Well-Being for Farmworker Children
Delgado, Daniela; Becker Herbst, Rachel
Education and Urban Society, v50 n4 p328-350 May 2018
Farmworkers comprise a marginalized population who experience various threats to their well-being. This study presents a community-based participatory research project that explored the educational attainment and well-being of Latino/a youth in farmworker families. Children of farmworkers (n = 18), farmworker parents (n = 12), and educational service providers (n = 8) in South Florida participated in focus groups. Two follow-up interviews deepened our understanding of focus group data. Using conventional content analysis, six themes emerged. Applying a public health ecological framework to the analysis and conceptualization of these findings, we shift the focus from merely describing facets associated with educational attainment to an examination of the optimal conditions required to produce educational well-being. Future research should include perspectives from educators, policy leaders, and activists.
