Re: 5-19-89 Neighborhood News: "Is the School System Shortchanging Hispanic Students?"

I've been a teacher for 8 yrs--mostly in Chgo. Hispanic schools. I can assure you that the #1 reason children fail is because they refuse to make the effort.

More money and new schools would be great but if kids refuse to co-operate, refuse to eat their "free lunch/breakfast," refuse to try, and insist on blaming everyone and everything else, they will continue to fail.
