Persistent Inequality: Contemporary Realities in the Education of Undocumented Latina/o Students

By Maria Pabon Lopez ’85 and Gerardo R. Lopez
Posted on May 11, 2010


(Routledge) Persistent Inequality examines how children of undocumented migrants in the United States are trapped at the intersection of two systems in crisis: public education and immigrant law. The authors discuss the legal and policy aspects of both the U.S. educational and immigration law systems, concluding that these systems need to address the living and working conditions of undocumented Latino students and remove obstacles to their educational achievement. In the book’s second chapter, they highlight the story of Dan El-Padilla Peralta ’06. Maria Pabon Lopez teaches at Indiana University School of Law, focusing on immigration law, family law, and criminal law, among other subjects. Gerardo R. Lopez is an associate professor of education in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at Indiana University.
