"Why Do They Give the Good Classes to Some and Not to Others?" Latino Parent Narratives of Struggle in a College Access Program.
Auerbach, Susan
Teachers College Record, v104 n7 p1369-92 Oct 2002
Examined personal narratives of struggle with schooling from working class Latino parents whose children were in an experimental college access program at a diverse metropolitan high school. Three narrative types emerged: life stories of parents' own struggles as students; stories of bureaucratic rebuff in parents' encounters with staff in their children's schools; and counter-stories that challenged official narratives of schooling.
