Title: Clase working paper: Educating Latino immigrant children in the shadow of Stone Mountain, Ga: A cultural historical perspective
Author: Portes, Pedro R.; Salas, Spencer
Abstract: This position paper advances an additive English-plus bilingual policy for Latino immigrant children theorized from a cultural historical framework. An example of the population shift of a Southern state and impact on that state's educational system is presented to illustrate how substandard education is being sustained for a rapidly growing sector of this ethnic population in the U.S. South. A research agenda for dismantling group-based inequality for future generations of Latino children is discussed with policy recommendations for access and equity in education for more students.
