Challenging "Best Practices" in Family Literacy and Parent Education Programs: The Development and Enactment of Mothering Knowledge among Puerto Rican and Latina Mothers in Chicago
Johnson, Laura Ruth
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v40 n3 p257-276 Sep 2009
This article discusses the findings of an ethnographic research study exploring the experiences of Puerto Rican women attending a family literacy program in Chicago. In particular, the study investigated the repositories of knowledge and information available to participating women that figured into the development of their notions about parenting, in the process posing these various trajectories against the types of knowledge and approaches usually promoted within family literacy and parent education programs.
