George I. Sánchez

The early life of George I. Sánchez is a narrative of educational triumph at a time when Chicana/o experiences with public schools in the U.S. were uniformly negative. He overcame a childhood of grinding poverty in mining camps throughout the Southwest, with a newly minted high school diploma became a teenaged public school teacher in rural schools, and married and began a family. In addition, with the financial support of the General Education Board (GEB), Sánchez earned degrees in education at the University of New Mexico, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of California, Berkeley. His success owed to hard work and the drive that stemmed from his imagined sense of distant ancestral glory and his belief in his unique opportunity to reclaim this lost prestige.
