Students in the Latino Education: Family, Culture and Schooling course added another dimension to those concepts in a symposium that brought their research to the public through poster presentations. Students examined key contributors to the achievement gap and, through research and projects, offered solutions that at once support student achievement and parent engagement, and challenge the rhetoric said to be pervasive in what critics have labeled the “whitestream” (white and mainstream) educational climate. Partners and target organizations include: La Vida in Lynn, Mass; Mano en Mano in Milbridge, Maine; and MASA Mex-Ed in the Bronx, N.Y. The symposium was made possible by support from the Latin American Studies Department, Joseph McKeen Center for the Common Good, and Office of Academic Affairs.
