This seminar will focus on the subaltern understandings and perceptions of “parental involvement” as viewed through the eyes of Latino migrant/immigrant families. It will examine the prevalent discourses within education that shape, define and ultimately constrain our understandings of involvement activity while highlighting how Latino families challenge these stock assumptions. Implications for research, policy, and practice will be discussed.
