Subtractive Schooling

PDF EBook by Angela Valenzuela

EBook Description

This an excellent piece of ethnographic work, and it well deserves the AERA 2000 Outstanding Book Award. Subtractive Schooling PDF EBookValenzuela does a fascinating job of merging the literatures of caring and social capital through the experiences of Seguin high school's students.Her argument that the social organization of Seguin High School subtracts cultural resources from Seguin's students is well supported through carefully selected evidentiary support. This book is hard to put down, and although through the cases presented, one wants to leave feeling hopeless, Valenzuela leaves the reader with hope in her epilogue discussion of the concept of additive schooling.This book definitely leaves the reader to ponder over the changes that need to be made to the current shape of our educational institutions.
