Mutiny in Mr. Chilcoate's Classroom Cinco de Mayo, 1993 The Talent Show. In this book, Valenzuela advances a theoretical conception of care by situating notions of caring and schooling in a structural and historical perspective. I would like to contextualize this study within a historical. framework for examining racism. In a short but highly useful examination of three thousand years of racism, Merlin Stone (1981) distinguishes between two dimensions of racism, and two stages in the process of constructing and consolidating racism. The two dimensions are economic and cultural racism.

Subtractive Schooling was written by Angela Valenzuela after she completed an ethnographic study of schooling conditions in an inner-city Houston high school. The high school was majority Mexican and Mexican-American students. She investigated the differences between immigrant student achievement and that of . born Mexican students to understand why immigrant students consistently out perform their peers

Subtractive Schooling: . Mexican Youth and the Politics of Caring. The problem is that Valenzuela does not actually interpret her data. The book is written without even the semblance of objectivity; rather, Valenzuela substitutes an unconditional privileging of Mexican culture for logical interpretation or clear argumentation. At no point in the book does she actually lay out an argument. Valenzuela does an excellent job of breaking down the disparity Mexican American youth face throughout public schooling careers.

Subtractive Schooling is an astonishing book. Angela Valenzuela is Professor in Curriculum and Instruction and Center for Mexican American Studies at the University of Texas, Austin.

The study included a survey of the entire student body (2,281 students), participant observation in the school and community from 1992 to 1995, 25 open-ended group interviews with students, and examination of school records and documents

Subtractive Schooling portrays the social and educational challenges facing schools and educational systems. The study shows the deficiencies of a system and the cultural and educational differences and beliefs within the Latino community that would enlighten and inform all community stakeholders regarding the necessary reform in the educational system. Rather than functioning as a conduit for the attainment of the American dream, this large, overcrowded, and underfunded urban school reproduces Mexican youth as monolingual, English-speaking, ethnic minority, neither identified with Mexico or equipped to function competently in America’s mainstream.

Provides an enhanced sense of what’s required to genuinely care for and educate the U.S.–Mexican youth in America.

I read this book for my Masters in Teaching program and really enjoyed it! It was one of the few books I looked forward to reading every week. I majored in Anthropology in college, so this book felt very familiar in the way it treated the problems the school was having.
It's an interesting look at how the schooling "system" can harm students unintentionally and how knowing who your students are and making efforts to get to know them is important beyond just the classroom, but for school administrators and just everyone else in the school. This particular school has a problem because the people who have the power (teachers, administrators, counselors, etc) are so overwhelmed that they do not show the students that they care about them. There are a few exceptions, but the idea of subtractive schooling essentially means that students are worse off going to this school, than if they drop out, so over half of the student population (at the time in 1994) was doing just that.
The first chapter is difficult to get through because it uses so much academic language and every sentence counts; I think it's like 30 pages, but it took me 3 hours! But keep reading! The reading gets easier because it changes to a conversational type tone when it switches into ethnographic writing.

Subtractive Schooling was written by Angela Valenzuela after she completed an ethnographic study of schooling conditions in an inner-city Houston high school. The high school was majority Mexican and Mexican-American students. She investigated the differences between immigrant student achievement and that of U.S.-born Mexican students to understand why immigrant students consistently out perform their peers. Her study revealed cultural differences between the Anglo and Mexican understandings of what education should be, indicating that white teachers what students to care about school while Mexican students wanted to feel like their teachers authentically cared about them as people. The schooling practices tended to degrade the Mexican culture and Spanish language which has ultimately led to the subraction of culture resources of Mexican students, particularly those students who are later generation U.S.-born and have felt the impact of the dominant culture on their lives longer than recently immigrated students. This book is a worthwhile read as it gives great insight into how schooling practices themselves contribute to the underachievement of certain student groups and shows the impact that true multicultural education can have on the learning environment.

I needed to have this book in a hurry. It arrived quickly. I purchased this one because the price was the the lowest, the condition was better than I expected for that price.

I like the concept of this book, but unfortunately Valenzuela repeats a lot of her information. The first chapter or so is very research heavy, which is sort of annoying. I liked understanding the story behind this book and I wish there was more of that. I had to read this book for my Master's in Teaching program. I don't recommend reading the whole book, but some chapters were eye opening. (Note: if you don't like authors jumping back and forth between another language (Spanish) and English, I don't recommend this book to them since Valenzuela does a lot of that, unless you are forced to read this book by a professor).

This book is informative and well written. It is conversational and informative, however, the information is almost 20 years old.
Very insightful and well written.
