"The first edition of Chicano School Failure and Success was a standard text for those of us who conducted research and taught courses on Chicano educational issues. The Second Edition added the voice of emerging new scholars and topics in the field and remained at the cutting edge of our thinking on research and policy. This Third Edition is an important advancement forward and remains a treasure and a must-read for researchers and educators who care about the education of Chicanos throughout the educational pipeline."
—Daniel G. Solorzano, Professor, Social Science & Comparative Education Division, University of California, Los Angeles
"The newly expanded and updated version of Chicano School Failure and Success is a rich melding and unique combination of expertise, experience, and exploration of the many complex problems and multidimensional issues experienced by Chicano students. I am excited about this edition for it certainly fills the gaps in our understanding. Valencia prolifically challenges leaders, educators, researchers, and advocates alike to grapple with the unequal social, political, and cultural systems of U.S. communities. No other significant text has these same impressive attributes, making this Third Edition a luminous trifecta accomplishment. I am anxious to use this engaging and provocative text with my very own students."
—Enrique G. Murillo, Jr., Professor, Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling, and Executive Director of Latino Education and Advocacy Days (LEAD), California State University, San Bernardino
"This new edition is a resource for educators, policy makers, and advocates for success and meaningful school reform for Chicano students. Recommended. "—Choice
