Chicano Pedagogy: Confluence, Knowledge, and Transformation.
Padilla, Raymond V.
Perspectives in Mexican American Studies, v7 p91-110 2000
Critiques contemporary efforts to reform Chicano education, premised on "affirmational" education (use of cultural role models to reinforce self-concept) and "reformational" education (increased minority participation in educational institutions). Proposes a "transformational" education encompassing a bifurcated epistemology (two ways of "knowing"), self-determined study plans within defined cycles of student work, technological learning networks that include communities, and praxis.
