Understanding the Language Development and Early Education of Hispanic Children
by Eugene E Garcia and Erminda H Garcia
I've learned quite a bit so far. And I'll be posting some startling statistics and lessons learned.
Here's the first one:
"In the 0 to 8 age group in 2000, almost 46% of the Hispanic children had mothers who had not graduated from high school, while this was the case for only 9% of White [children 0 to 8]."
And ever more scary:
"Twenty percent of Hispanic children had mothers who had not gone beyond the 8th grade compared to 1%" of White children.
