Clipping Their Own Wings: The Incompatibility Between Latino Culture and American Education addresses one of the most urgent problems in the United States' educational system: Latino underachievement. While most educators believe that the problem lies in the present school system and in budgetary constraints, this book takes a bold stand, arguing that in fact Hispanic culture is incompatible with educational success in the United States. Clipping Their Own Wings outlines a unique solution to this growing problem: Selective Cultural Adoption (SCA). SCA is a method by which Latinos can retain certain meaningful characteristics of their culture and, at the same time, adopt key aspects of the Anglo-American culture that will help them succeed, especially in the area of education. This hands-on book illustrates how teachers and parents can improve the educational experience of young Latinos in America.
