Education and Young Hispanic Children

The Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) has issued a new report called "Young Hispanic Children: Boosting Opportunities for Learning" that discusses current circumstances and recommendations:

Young Hispanic children are not only the largest racial/ethnic group in the U.S., but also the youngest and fastest-growing. Among racial/ethnic groups, Hispanics have a unique linguistic profile. Approximately three in four young Hispanic children lives in homes in which at least some Spanish is spoken regularly. Empirical evidence suggests that certain interventions during the early years are a wise investment to improving learning opportunities and outcomes for Hispanic children.
