Phillips, Aprille – Journal of Latinos and Education, 2018
The Dominican Republic has a substantial history of transnational movement to the US that affects more than one generation of transnationals, whose lives, as described by Smith (1994), are 'neither "here" nor "there" but at one "both" "here" and "there"'(p. 17). While the Dominican transnational…

Fernandez, Jacqueline – Journal of Latinos and Education, 2018
If classrooms are being filled with undocumented Latino students, it is essential that teachers are trained on how to better serve this population, placing a particular focus on those students who have a passion for STEM disciplines, because the U.S. deserves a group of multilingual and multicultural student workers who will help America compete…

Sperling, Rick; Zwahr-Castro, Jennifer; Cruz, Felicia; Montalvo, Jason – Journal of Latinos and Education, 2017
Previous research has shown that people often engage in cultural-deficit thinking when reasoning about racial/ethnic achievement gaps. However, it is unclear whether culture-blaming explanations are best thought of as group-level internal attributions, expressions of prejudice against a lower status group, or self-serving bias. In this study,…

Chang, Aurora – Journal of Latinos and Education, 2017
Drawing from Chicana feminist epistemology and counter-storytelling, this article argues that Latina high school students' refusal to attach the culturally constructed and hegemonically imposed label of smartness to themselves, while easily identifying that label within others, stems from a resistance to associate themselves with traditional…

Barrera, Magdalena L. – Journal of Latinos and Education, 2014
Recent studies show that many college instructors still believe that Latino students lack the "school smarts" for academic success.

To address this gap, we conducted in-depth interviews with 32 Mexican-heritage 9th graders. Students identified parents' advice giving as the most salient form of involvement. Parental advice emphasized…
