Rhetorical Prècis

In the article, “Scholarship Girls Aren’t the Only Chicanas Who Go to College: Former
Chicana Continuation High School Students Disrupting the Educational Achievement Binary”
(2010), Maria C. Malagon and Crystal R. Alvarez argues the way educational scholarships
should define “high achieving,” should be personal qualities of students as they confront
challenges and barriers along their educational trajectory (Alvarez and Malagon 2018). Alvarez
and Malagon support their argument by explaining the educational research on schooling failures
of students, schools, families, and communities. The authors’ purpose was to inform reader that
Chicana students are successful despite of their cultural differences by sampling five Chicana
women who attended a continuation high school in order to include appropriate stats and
findings. The authors write in a formal tone to educate the critics of young women who have
experienced an unfair social justice system.
