Sugar Beets, Segregation, and Schools: Mexican Americans in a Northern Colorado Community, 1920-1960.
Donato, Ruben
Journal of Latinos and Education, v2 n2 p69-88 2003
What was unique about the Mexican American experience in Fort Collins (Colorado) was the extent to which the Great Western Sugar Company colonized Mexican workers. They lived in Mexican colonies, separate neighborhoods, or remote locations on sugar beet farms. In public schools, Mexican Americans were perceived as intellectually inferior and were expected to leave early to work in the fields. (Contains references.) (TD)
