Title: Latino Education
Subtitle: An Agenda for Community Action Research: a Volume of the National Latino/a Education Research and Policy Project
Edited By: Pedro Pedraza
Melissa Rivera
Description:

This landmark volume represents the work of the National Latino/a Education
Research Agenda Project (NLERAP)-an initiative focused on school reform and
educational research with and for Latino communities. NLERAP's goal is to
bring together various constituencies within the broad Latino community who
are concerned with public education to articulate a Latino perspective on
research-based school reform, and to use research as a guide to improving
the public school systems that serve Latino students and to maximizing
their opportunities to participate fully and equally in all social,
economic, and political contexts of society.

"Latino Education: An Agenda for Community Action Research" conceptualizes
and illustrates the theoretical framework for the NLERAP agenda and its
projects. This framework is grounded in three overlapping areas of
scholarship and activism, which are reflected within the chapters in this
volume: critical studies, illuminating and analyzing the status of people
of color in the United States; Latino/a educational research, capturing the
sociohistorical, cultural, and political schooling experiences of U.S.
Latino/a communities; and participatory action research, exemplifying a
liberation-oriented methodology for truly transformative education. The
volume includes both descriptive educational research and critical analyses
of previous research and educational agendas related to Latino/a
communities in the United States.
