“We Want Better Education!”: The 1960s Chicano Student Movement, School Walkouts, and the Quest for Educational Reform in South Texas

First Edition. Published in 2024 by Texas A&M University Press. Hardcover. By James B. Barrera.

In “We Want Better Education!”, James B. Barrera offers a detailed and comprehensive analysis of the educational, cultural, and political issues of the Chicano Movement in Texas, which remains one of the lesser-known social and political efforts of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. This movement became the political training ground for greater Chicano empowerment for students. By the 1970s, it was these students who helped to organize La Raza Unida Party in Texas.
