The Ordinary-ness of Institutional Racism: The Effect of History and Law in the Segregation and Integration of Latinas/os in Schools
Gonzalez, Juan Carlos
American Educational History Journal, v34 n2 p331-345 2007
This article examines the effect of history and law in the segregation and integration of Latinas/os in schools. Initially, a Critical Race Theory (CRT) analysis of the question of the effects of Latina/o school desegregation history and law on their present-day educational conditions highlighted the reasons for the omni-present struggle for advancement, but it is also important to note that a lot of educational progress has been made. While Latina/o school segregation is increasing, not all Latinas/os receive a segregated education. The history and legal struggles that were presented are merely the beginning of a struggle that is likely to intensify in reaction to not only the expected Latina/o growth, but their increased sophistication and demand for justice and equity in the schooling process. But, presentation of these legal cases is merely a synopsis that articulated a relationship between Anglo American philosophy, racism and institutional racism, and Latina/o historical and legal struggles for educational equity.
