Pedagogy and the Struggle for Voice: Issues of Language, Power, and Schooling for Puerto Ricans


How often are the perspectives of Puerto Rican students recognized, listened to, and taken into pedagogical account? Not very often, according to this incisive study which deals with the struggles that these students confront in U.S. schools. Puerto Rican students struggle to make sense out of and fashion a voice from the multiple and often contradictory realities that comprise their daily existence. This book challenges generally accepted perspectives and practices among teachers and calls for new pedagogies that respond to the complex needs of these students.
