Children of the Harvest: The Schooling of Dust Bowl and Mexican Migrants during the Depression Era.
Theobald, Paul; Donato, Ruben
Peabody Journal of Education, v67 n4 p29-45 Sum 1990
Chronicles experiences of depression era "Okies," juxtaposes them against experiences of Mexican Americans, and illuminates the diminution of agricultural labor in an industrializing society. Schooling for those groups was legitimized by their low occupational status. When economic circumstances improved, whites escaped from migrant labor, but Mexican Americans could not. (SM)
