Dr. Maricela Oliva, associate professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, was the principal editor of a special issue of the International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education. Oliva was joined by Dr. Harriett Romo, professor of Sociology and director of The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Mexico Center, and Dr. Victor Zúñiga, director of research and extension at the Universidad de Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico, as guest co-editors.


The special issue, entitled “La Educación en México/Education in Mexico: Extending Understanding of Educational Issues for the Region,” was a three-year collaborative effort that covers school and post-secondary contexts in Mexico, including a language policy article co-written by Dr. Peter Sayer, assistant professor in the Department of Bicultural-Bilingual Studies.


Along with Oliva and Romo, several UTSA graduate students and faculty members provided assistance throughout the editorial process, including doctoral student Nicole Reyes, anthropology professor Dr. Jill Fleuriet, and College of Education and Human Development faculty members Dr. Iliana Alanís, Dr. Lucila Ek, Dr. Anne-Marie Nuñez, Dr. Laura Rendón, and Dr. Mariela Rodriguez.
