Chicano Civil Rights and Education

In this module, we will view content that provides a broader context related to the Chicano Movement and the fight for educational equity in the United States. First, watch the video presentation, titled “Austin Revealed: Chicano Civil Rights.”  As you view, jot down a few important notes on the following areas: Community Demographics Community Organization/Structure Social or Cultural Issues School Experiences Access to Resources Disciplinary Practices Historic and/or Legal Context Economic issues/Socioeconomic Differences Tracking and Ability Grouping Teacher Attitudes Curriculum Needs Social Justice Advocacy After viewing the video content, use the Critical Race Theory (CRT) tenets shared below to analyze themes from your notes based on the video presentation. Your analysis should be at least 300-400 words. Tenets of Critical Race Theory Race isn’t a biological difference between human beings. Rather, it’s a socially invented category used to oppress and exploit people of color. Legal “advantages” for people of color tend to serve the interests of dominant white groups. Racial hierarchy is typically unaffected or even reinforced by alleged “improvements” to the legal status of people of color. Members of minority groups are assigned negative stereotypes, which benefit white people. No individual can be adequately identified by membership in only one group; people belong to multiple identity groups and are affected by assumptions about more than one group. The experiences people of color have with racism provide insights into the nature of the U.S. legal system. Racism in the United States is normal, not aberrational.   For This or a Similar Paper Click Here To Order Now
