Con Respeto : Bridging the Distances Between Culturally Diverse Families and Schools (96 Edition)by Guadalupe Valdes
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
This book presents a study of ten Mexican immigrant families, describing how such families go about the business of surviving and learning to succeed in a new world. Guadalupe Valdes examines what appears to be a disinterest in education by Mexican parents and shows, through extensive quotations from interview data, that these struggling families are both rich and strong in family values and bring with them clear views of what constitutes success and failure. The study's conclusion questions the merit of typical family intervention programs designed to promote school success and suggests that these interventions — because they do not genuinely respect the values of diverse families — may have long-term negative consequences for children.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 215-227) and index.
