Pre-K and Latinos: The Foundation for America's Future. Pre-K Now Research Series
Garcia, Eugene E.; Gonzales, Danielle M.
Pre-K Now
The Latino population in the United States is growing at a rapid pace, and the proportion of our nation's under-five year olds who are Latino is increasing even faster. Many of these children lack access to the high-quality pre-kindergarten experiences that promote academic achievement and future success. By providing Latino children with culturally and linguistically appropriate services in high-quality, pre-k-for-all programs, educators and policymakers can help close the achievement gap and make a major contribution to realizing this growing population's remarkable potential. (Contains 1 table, 5 figures and 37 endnotes.)
