    I found your blog via my search for Dr. Jose Moreno, we were working on a book together on the ongoing Student Chicano movment in Arizona butl he left Arizona.

    Anyways he was someone I’d often look for to talk Chicano/a philosphy, I stumbled on your site, since you have his book listed for your class criteria. I like you require your students to sign up for CASHE, I been to Cashe a couple times. I like your blogs, they give some insightful information, not just pandering to what everyone wants to hear. I wish you the best with rhis operation!
