Gilbert Gonzalez's “Racial Intelligence Testing and the Mexican People” is a major contribution in analyzing the educational factors which result in social inequality among the Mexican population in the US.

Instead, Gonzalez views education as a system which perpetuates and maintains racial and class divisions in our society.
