The Chicanx/Latinx student has been underrepresented over the course of the development of the American educational system. This system has been shaped through the lense of the oppressor, the Anglo community. My purpose with this essay is to research the different ways that Chicanx/Latinx students are doing to dismantle the negative perceptions that have been embedded upon us all along. I also intend to focus on what the Chicanx student is doing to move forward in an educational system that has been created for them to fail.
