Hispanic Vision for Graduation: What Are Hispanic Children Celebrating during Hispanic Heritage Month in America?

Share Article

As Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated in classrooms across the nation, millions of Hispanic children are being denied their universal human right to access quality education in America.

The Presidential election is less than 50 days away, but what will it mean for the future of Hispanic children in America today when more than half will never graduate High School due to circumstances beyond their control?

Education News reported in a post in EducationViews.org., November 17, 2011, that "the number of Hispanic children in America is surging, but public schools across the country face a shortage of teachers with the same cultural heritage. If that changed, experts say, students would do better."

Unfortunately, not much has changed in terms of improving the educational outcome of Hispanic students in America even though a recent poll confirmed that education is what matters most to Hispanic families.

The real victims in today's politically charged Education Reform battlefield are the more 15 million innocent Hispanic children in America, a majority of which will never graduate due to circumstances beyond their control unless something is done today.

It will take more than the current political rhetoric of "Give Parents a Choice and Give Children a Chance" to change the course of history in America.

We need to take action now.

We need to give Hispanic teachers a voice.

Hispanic Vision for Graduation says, "Only when you give Hispanic teachers a voice will you truly give Hispanic parents a choice and Hispanic children a chance to live the American dream." - HuffPost Social News post August 31, 2012.

Hispanic Vision for Graduation, a New Vision for America.
