With immigration in the media forefront (prior to the passing of Anna Nicole) and the large debate that has insued there of, I want to take the pulse of my readers to see what they would like to see regarding equality for LEGAL Hispanic immigrants in the United States. It has been my experience that even the brightest most motivated student in grades 1-12 still lack the ability for equality beyond school age in the work force. The reason that I am seeing is that the lack of income for a family often leaves the student with few options rather than to join the same work force in labor that their families currently know. So what if... What if there was a way to educate Hispanic students in language and in a way that their learning capacity far surpasses what is available to them currently? And what if an incentive was offered to the families of these students that could improve their current quality of living? And what if health care and rewards incentives were offered to those willing to excel in such a program? And what if college become not a distant dream but a reality for those who have only known a future in the agriculture and labor industry? What if? Dare we dream? Are you of Hispanic decent and /or a legal immigrant? Email me. Let me know what you think and stay tuned.
