Scholarship Girls Aren't the Only Chicanas Who Go to College: Former Chicana Continuation High School Students Disrupting the Educational Achievement Binary
In this article, the authors re-conceptualize the way educational scholarship defines 'high achieving.' The authors use critical race theory, Latina/o critical theory, and Chicana feminist epistemologies to examine the journeys of five self-identified Chicana women who attended a continuation high school in California. The authors highlight the resistance strategies these young women employ through their critique of social oppression. The authors conclude with recommendations to help educators and policy makers prepare this growing number of students for postsecondary schooling.
