Lipman, Pauline; Gutstein, Eric
Race, Gender & Class, v8 n1 p57-80 2001
Examines implications of Chicago school policies for one Hispanic elementary school, suggesting that although Chicago's centrally regulated accountability measures include demands for improving minority students' education, current policies undermine the struggle for an empowering, equitable education. Describes schooling that is rooted in sociocultural analysis of educational failure and supportive of critical literacies grounded in students' language, culture, and experiences. (SM)
