This volume--the first edited book on the education of Puerto
Ricans written primarily by Puerto Rican authors--focuses on the
history and experiences of Puerto Rican students in the United
States by addressing issues of identity, culture, ethnicity,
language, gender, social activism, community involvement, and
policy implications. It is the first book to both concentrate on
the education of Puerto Ricans in particular, and to bring together
in one volume, the major and emerging scholars who are developing
cutting-edge scholarship in the field. Puerto Rican Students in
U.S. Schools: * features both scholarly chapters (conceptual and
research studies) and reflective essays, as well as two poems, *
combines broad overview studies with classroom practice and social
action, and * includes chapters that trace the history of the
education of Puerto Ricans in U.S. schools in general and its
history in New York City, and one chapter on return migrants.
