Education y Justicia: A Living History of the Latinx Experience in U.T Austin
MetadataShow full item record
Social policy in the United States has historically and systematically prevented Latinx students from attaining educational equity. The resistance to this inequality in Austin is located in institutional spaces, the creation of cultural spaces, and the reclamation of erased histories. This has lead to the need for the creation of cultural spaces and legislation that encourage the equity, power, and culture of the Latinx community. We are mapping these living histories of resistance to help form frameworks for rethinking educational social policy. In this case we used U.T. and the greater Austin area to explore the living histories of the struggle for educational justice in our city and propose frameworks for rethinking educational social policy.
