Reyes, G. T.; Zermeño, Bernadette Pilar – Multicultural Education, 2018
Schooling in the U.S. is ideological by design (Althusser, 1971; Apple, 1990; Duncan-Andrade & Morrell, 2008). It can justify and further the inequitable, hierarchical, and stratified economic, social, and cultural attitudes of a society (Aronowitz & Giroux, 1985; Ayers, 2004; Bowles & Gintis, 1976; Eubanks, Parish, & Smith, 1997).…

Rodríguez-Valls, Fernando; Torres, Celina – Multicultural Education, 2014
Migrant families are mobile by nature. They are constantly searching--for the next harvest, for a new job opportunity.
