The Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) will release two reports on Friday, November 6, to coincide with the tenth convening of its annual Latina/o Education Summit.
- POLICY BRIEF: Racial Microaggressions: What They Are, What They Are Not, and Why They Matter examines the role of racial microaggressions as a significant obstacle in the educational, professional, and life trajectories of Latinas/os. The authors present models for understanding racial microaggressions and recommendations for disrupting them.
- RESEARCH REPORT: Still Falling Through the Cracks: Revisiting the Latina/o Education Pipeline surveys ten years of research findings produced for the Latina/o Education Summit, revealing the slow rate of progress for Latino students set against an exponential increase in the Latino population in the state.
- BACKGROUND: The CSRC Latina/o Education Summit at UCLA brings together scholars, educators, community representatives, policy makers, administrators, and students to explore viable policy recommendations
and initiatives that can improve educational opportunities for Latina/o students and all students of color in the U.S. To view the program for the 2015 summit, visit: http://www.chicano.ucla.edu/files/events/EdSummitProgram15_web.pdf
