Equity, Excellence, Involvement, and Pluralism: A New Day for America's Children. The National Hispanic Educational Platform.
Center for Hispanic Educational Leadership, Denver, CO.
This pamphlet is a statement of the National Hispanic Educational Platform, which is based on the premise that Hispanic ideals, history, culture, and the Spanish language have a legitimate and important place in the social and governmental structure of the United States. It identifies four rights that are the cornerstone of education for Hispanic and all children: (1) the right of equal access to all educational resources and programs; (2) the right to strive for and expect excellence; (3) the right and responsibility of Hispanic parents and community members to be involved in educational decision-making; and (4) the right to strive for and maintain cultural diversity. Recommendations for action at the Federal, State, and local levels are made. (CJM)
