PAR EntreMundos: A Pedagogy of the Americas challenges the standard narratives of "achievement" to think about how Latinx students can experience an education that forges new possibilities of liberation and justice. Growing Latinx student populations have led to concerns about "assimilating" them into mainstream academic frameworks. This book offers an alternative, decolonizing approach that embraces complex Latinx identities and clears a path toward resisting systems of oppression. Educating Latinx students should involve more than just helping them achieve in school but rather having them recognize their agency to transform the larger structure of education to promote justice-oriented practices. The authors offer a framework for such transformation by honoring their theoretical lineages, proposing a set of guiding principles, and sharing stories about collective social action within and outside Latinx communities. PAR EntreMundos: A Pedagogy of the Americas is a practice of liberation and freedom.

"PAR EntreMundos: A Pedagogy of the Americas draws upon Freirean praxis, critical race and borderland theories, South American liberation psychologies, and social movement histories to propose pedagogical practices that disrupt and dismantle traditional academic binaries between the researcher/researched, expert/novice, and institution/community. Latin communities in the U.S. are looking for ways to use education to empower a new generation of student leaders. This volume provides several powerful examples of how this is being done right now in schools and communities throughout the U.S. For those who want to use education as a means to challenge discrimination and marginalization, this book will serve as an invaluable resource." -Pedro Noguera, Distinguished Professor of Education at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at UCLA
"PAR EntreMundos: A Pedagogy of the Americas powerfully engages the theory and practice of participatory action research in ways that revolutionize its potential for critically understanding the particularities and universalisms of the cultural traditions of the Americas. In so doing, the editors of this book bring together a striking collection of educational essays that illustrate the pedagogical and political force of a communal methodology for radically comprehending the beautifully diverse and complex hemisphere that informs our labor as educators and cultural citizens of the world." -Antonia Darder, Leavey Presidential Endowed Chair in Ethics and Moral Leadership at Loyola Marymount University and Distinguished Visiting Professor of Education at the University of Johannesburg
