Many times, time goes by without any improvements. Things change, but don’t change.
Years ago Native American children were taken from their parents and placed in white family homes and were forbidden to speak their home language. Thus, reaching education and reading were almost impossible.
Today, kindergartners from Spanish-speaking homes are placed in schools where ABC examples are only in English (A is for APPLE/manzana and B is for BEAR/oso).
With the result that students are trying to read without even knowing their ABCs. Thus, Latino kindergartners from Spanish-speaking homes are now in the same boat as Native American children once were—trying to read without knowing their ABCs.
