HANDBOOK OF LATINOS AND EDUCATION.
This Handbook of Latinos and Education (HLE) has the unique purpose and function of profiling the scope and terrain of this particular domain of academic inquiry. It presents the most significant and potentially influential work in the field of Latinos and Education, in terms of its contributions to research, to professional practice, and to the emergence of related interdisciplinary studies and theory.
There was a multi-stakeholder collaboration that involved a team made up of an Editor-In-Chief, Editors, Section Editors, an Advisory Board, Consultants, Chapter Authors, and LEA/T&F Acquisitions / Production Manager / CopyEditors.
The Handbook captures the field at this point in time -- each chapter offers a comprehensive review of research and practice on the topic that is its focus (not a research report of a single study, but a piece representing the authors' particular point of view, etc...)
There is an Editorial Board (that helped us build a contents map, reviewed chapter drafts, and identified the most pertinent resources for the appendix).
There were Consultants that worked with specific authors and chapters (to comprehensively review key scholars, the array of conceptual, philosophical and methodological approaches, and the main programs of research and lines of thinking).
Editors and Section Editors worked with the respective Section Teams, to hold the sections together conceptually and address any gaps in the knowledge base.
