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.
