Overview

Garza (University of Texas-San Antonio) presents the stories of successful high school and college students who come from migrant farm laboring families, in an effort to help teachers, education students, researchers, and policy makers understand factors that lead to success for minority language students. The original study was conducted from an ethnographic perspective, using qualitative approaches that require fine-tuned analysis of ethno-historical and interview data. Students speak in their own words in numerous excerpts from interviews, and the authors use lessons learned from their stories to make recommendations for schools and educational policy.
