Hispanic and Latino students now represent the largest ethnic group educated in the United States public school system. That means the ability to successfully educate Hispanic and Latino students, from pre-kindergarten to graduate school, is now of primary importance to the future of the United States. Under this critical context, Jaime Castellano's Educating Hispanic/Latino Students: Opening Doors to Hope, Promise, and Possibility arrives at the perfect moment to help educators better understand the Hispanic and Latino student demographic, and more importantly, uncover the strategies and implementation practices to better educate this burgeoning population. Topics covered include: The influence of poverty on the education of Hispanic/Latino students The challenge of identity when educating Hispanic/Latino students Educating the "whole child" and what this means for Hispanic/Latino students Engaging America's Hispanic/Latino parents and families Supporting Hispanic/Latino students through curriculum, instruction, and assessment By recognizing that Hispanic and Latino students are vital linguistic, economic, and social resources to our society, Castellano's Hispanic/Latino Students: Opening Doors to Hope, Promise, and Possibility is rooted in the firm belief that educational equity, access, and higher expectations should be the driving force to provide Hispanic and Latino students a quality education that prepares them for a successful and meaningful future.

In both diagnostic procedures and in program prescriptions, this book attempts to deal with the problem of the Hispanic child who speaks no Spanish and who, in fact, may be discouraged from learning Spanish by parents who mistakenly feel they are helping the child make a quicker transition to the dominant culture. The first three chapters present some curriculum and instructional methods that can and should be used with groups of Hispanic children who speak English. In the first chapter, three fundamental premises are given: (1) curricula designed for middle-class native English-speaking children are not conducive to teaching Hispanic children; (2) English-speaking Hispanic students may not be proficient enough to succeed in the standard curriculum; and (3) instructional personnel need to develop a curriculum appropriate for English-speaking Hispanic children. In chapter two, current research is used to expose and discredit myths and stereotypes about Hispanic children and in chapter three, suggestions are offered to teachers/supervisors for becoming better acquainted with the needs and school problems of Latino students. An annotated bibliography is divided into four parts: Mexican American (Chicano), Puerto Rican, Latin American, and Cuban. Sources are listed in three areas: History and Culture, Contributors to Present Society, and Imaginative Literature. (Author/AN)

Despite their numbers, Latinos continue to lack full and equal participation in all facets of American life, including education. This book provides a critical discussion of the role that select K–12 educational policies have and continue to play in failing Latino students. The author draws upon institutional, national, and statewide data sets, as well as interviews among students, teachers, and college administrators, to explore the role that public policies play in educating Latino students. The book concludes with specific recommendations that aim to raise achievement, college transition rates, and success among Latino students across the preschool through college continuum. Frances Contrerasis an Associate Professor of Higher Education in the area of Leadership and Policy Studies in the College of Education, University of Washington in Seattle “Prof. Frances Contreras is one of the nation’s leading authorities on Latino educational problems and on policies that will effectively address these. This book presents a unique and incisive analysis of the Latino educational achievement gap and its connections to concomitant gap in educational opportunities for Latinos. This very readable book combines rigorous scholarship with clearly stated policy recommendations. It should be read by all who are interested in understanding and addressing one of the most serious problems of our times.” —Jorge Chapa,University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign “Rich in data and social context, Contreras presents a compelling and comprehensive picture for the collective need to invest fully in the education of our Latino youth. As important, she delineates a bold public policy pathway for Latino student success that encompasses K–12 and higher education.” —James M. Montoya,Vice President, Higher Education, The College Board “This book offers valuable insights and productive recommendations for addressing a critically important topic: how to improve educational equity for Latinos, one of our nation’s fastest-growing but most-underserved populations.” —Laura Perna, Professor, Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania
