520    "In Cracks in the Schoolyard, Conchas challenges deficit 
       models of schooling and turns school failure on its head. 
       Going beyond presenting critical case studies of social 
       inequality and education, this book features achievement 
       cases that depict Latinos as active actors--not hopeless 
       victims--in the quest for social and economic mobility. 
       Chapters examine the ways in which college students, high 
       school youth, English language learners, immigrant Latino 
       parents, queer homeless youth, the children of Mexican 
       undocumented immigrants, and undocumented immigrant youth 
       all work in local settings to improve their quality of 
       life and advocate for their families and communities. 
       Taken together, these counternarratives will help 
       educators and policymakers fill the cracks in the 
       schoolyard that often create disparity and failure for 
       youth and young adults. This powerful book examines: the 
       processes that operate within and outside of school to 
       push students out and keep them from thriving academically
       and socially ; the patterns that exist among individuals--
       students, teachers, parents, and other caring adults--to 
       resist failure and construct for school success ; and the 
       role of case study methods in illuminating power, 
       inequality, and success in education."--Publisher's
