Summary
"Urban Schools documents the quality of resistance and identity politics in relation to both the formal and hidden curricula of urban schools, their pedagogical practices, and their administrative norms and policies. Builidng on the notion that the study of "marginality" is equally as important as an understanding of the school's structural connections to the wider society, Mickey Lauria and Luis F. Miron demonstrate how resistance is much more than a random series of psychological events. Indeed, within the social context of the formation of racial and ethnic identity in schools in New Orleans, Louisiana, students' acts of resistance alter the ideological structures of schooling."--BOOK JACKET
