Buscando Su Voz en Dos Culturas = Finding Your Voice in Two Cultures.
Cline, Zulmara
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n9 p699-702 May 1998
An administrator/former teacher ponders difficulties of living in two cultures: a professional world that respects her degrees and credentials and a Latina world that questions pursuit of the "American dream." Although she used her American voice to coax a Latina student back to school, she sympathized with the mother's family-centered aspirations for her daughter. Applying compulsory education standards to diverse communities without listening is misguided. (MLH)
