Standing Up for a Son at School: Experiences of a Mexican Immigrant Mother.
McClelland, Jerry; Chen, Chen
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v19 n3 p281-300 Aug 1997
Phenomenological study focused on a Spanish-speaking immigrant mother's interactions with primarily English-speaking educators in schools attended by her son. Interactions around four disciplinary actions reveal language and culture as barriers to the mother acting on her son's behalf. She didn't understand school practices and culture and felt unwelcome at school. Contains 20 references. (Author/SV)
