Ending the Silence of the Mexican Immigrant Voice in Public Education: Creating Culturally Inclusive Family-School-Community Partnerships
Dotson-Blake, Kylie P.; Foster, Victoria A.; Gressard, Charles F.
Professional School Counseling, v12 n3 p230-239 Feb 2009
Race and culture continue to be conceptualized within a polarized, Black-White dichotomy in U.S. education, rendering the Latino population a silenced minority. Partnerships, when developed with intentionality and critical consciousness, provide a vehicle for inviting the participation of all families. This article offers school counselors a template for developing inclusive partnerships involving Mexican immigrant families. Suggestions for future research are shared in hopes of further illuminating the complexities and benefits of effectively engaging immigrant families.
