Abstract

Gilbert Gonzalez’s “Racial Intelligence Testing and the Mexican People" is a major contribution in analyzing the educational factors which result in social inequality among the Mexican population in the US. For decades, the power elite has espoused the myth that educational achievement for minorities is the key to social upward mobility. Instead, Gonzalez views education as a system which perpetuates and maintains racial and class divisions in our society.
