The Chicana/o Education Pipeline
History, Institutional Critique, and Resistance
Edited by Michaela J. L. Mares-Tamayo and Daniel G. Solórzano
Aztlán Anthology, Volume 5
March 2018

The Chicana/o Education Pipeline explores the relationships between Chicana/o students, families, and communities and the various school settings that comprise the education pipeline, from kindergarten classrooms through postsecondary programs and postgraduate experiences. The essays, which appeared in Aztlán: A Journal of Chicano Studies between 1970 and 2015, present a historical overview that spans the 1880s to the present. Selected for their potential to spark discussions about Chicana/o experiences and resilience in US schools, the essays reveal how educational institutions have operated in contradictory ways for Chicana/o students: they have depressed and marginalized as well as emancipated and empowered them.
