Grounded in an ethnographic study, this article presents how testimonios gathered in Spanish with Spanish-speaking mothers serve as counter-narratives to research that positions them as disengaged. The article illuminates how mothers are systemically denied authority in their children’s education and how they subvert attempts to minimize their parental presence, and closes with a preliminary framework for culturally sustaining research.

Through a systematic literature review on 87 articles, this study’s purpose is to gain insight into what the literature says about educating immigrant children through the lens of social justice in Hong Kong (HK), Turkey, and the United States (U.S.), as each context presents a distinct case of immigration. In light of documented inequities experienced by immigrant children, we conduct our review within a framework of teaching immigrant students globally within, versus parallel to, the field of teaching for social justice.

This mixed methods study examines 433 preservice teachers’ opportunities to learn to teach English language learners (ELLs) across different subprograms within a predominantly White teacher education program in the United States. Findings suggest that the program’s “the same for all” pan-diversity integration approach to teacher preparation has served as a collective equity trap that fails to equip preservice teachers with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need to successfully teach ELLs and reproduces inequity for ELLs.

In this article, we use field theory to examine survey (n = 1,549) and interview (n = 100) data on the ways that different forms of capital operate in college students’ lives to restrict their ability to pursue a college internship. Although internships are widely promoted in higher education, our findings demonstrate that 64% (n = 676) of students who did not take an internship had in fact wanted to but were kept from doing so by the need to work, a heavy course load, a lack of positions, and insufficient pay. The data also reveal differences in how students experience these obstacles based on their major, geographic location, socioeconomic status, and first-generation student status, highlighting the need for postsecondary institutions to actively institute support systems to help these students locate and then successfully pursue an internship or other form of work-based learning.

This study shows how a practice common in research and accountability policy of rank ordering schools based on value-added model estimates can mask troubling differences in school effectiveness, especially differential effectiveness by race.
