    schema:reviewBody ""Will the United States have an educational caste system in 2030? Drawing on both extensive demographic data and compelling case studies, this powerful book reveals the depth of the education crisis looming for Latinos, the nation's largest and most rapidly growing minority group." "Richly informative and accessibly written, The Latino Education Crisis describes the cumulative disadvantages that too many children face in the complex American school systems, where one in five students is Latino. Many live in poor and dangerous neighborhoods, attend impoverished and underachieving schools, and are raised by parents who speak little English and are the least educated in any ethnic group." "The effects for the families, the community, and the nation are sobering. Latino children are behind on academic measures by the time they enter kindergarten. And although immigrant drive propels some to success, most never catch up. Many drop out of high school; those who do go onto college - often ill prepared and overworked - seldom finish." "Revealing and disturbing, The Latino Education Crisis is a call to action and will be essential reading for everyone involved in planning the future of American schools."--BOOK JACKET." ;
