The Critical Role of All Educators in the School Success of Latino Children
Gonzalez, Maria Luisa
Leadership and Policy in Schools, v9 n4 p479-494 2010
For many years, the responsibility of educating Latino students has been delegated to Latino educators, bilingual teachers, or bilingual directors. Educators have not acknowledged it as a responsibility of each adult hired by the public school system. Although bilingual education has grown into an incredible educational movement, the same attitudes and struggles remain. Educators are not impacting Latino children the way they would like and the way they ought to. In this article, the author discusses the critical role of all educators in the school success of Latino children. She contends that educators can choose to recognize the education of Latino students either as a moral imperative or an economic directive. As the author was working with educational leaders to build cadres of responsive school administrators, she and her colleague designed what they called the Leadership Success Model (LSM). The author shares this as a possible framework for the successful education of Latinos with a few modifications to the formerly published model. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
