Journal of Latinos and Education, v2 n2 p89-100 2003
Disparities in racial and ethnic identity between students and teachers highlights the need for successful Latinas/os to enter the teaching profession. Interviews with five beginning Latina teachers in California indicated that significant conflicts between home and school discourses were experienced throughout schooling. Conflicting discourses focused on characteristics of the "educated person," appropriate social relationships for educated persons, and "evidence" of education. Respondents' coping strategies are discussed. (Author/TD)
