About the Author

Lucinda Pease-Alvarez (University of California, Santa Cruz) (Author), Sandra R. Schecter (Edited by)


"...offers a rich set of ethnographic portraits that illustrate community-referenced education 'in action' in various contexts, both in and out of schools. By reading these vivid portraits...educators can see possibilities for improving education in their own local spaces."
