This paper discusses ways to improve the reading scores and general literacy of elementary school Hispanic students. The paper examines the background of language literacy issues for the Hispanic student and presents recommendations for the future. As it often causes other maladaptive behaviors such as truancy and early drop-out rates, an important component of the paper deals with these behaviors within the Hispanic student population. By allowing for this much information and a thorough analysis of the data, the paper is able to show all of the concerns that are being dealt with, how serious language literacy problems really are within the Hispanic student population and whether more should be done in the study of it to help more students improve the quality of their lives.

From the Paper:

"These low expectations clearly indicate that either teachers at the work site have largely given up on the idea that these students can be taught and will ever make something of themselves, or they have reached the point where they no longer care whether these students succeed. This certainly may not be true for all of the teachers at the school, but if it is true for even one of them then the students that work with that teacher are not getting the educational experience that all children deserve. Those that work in schools where there are many high achievers may not see this problem as being realistic. In other words, they may assume that it is not as bad as it is being made out to be and only a few of the students and teachers are actually having any kind of problems. This would be nice if it were accurate, but conversations with the teachers and the FCAT scores of the school tell a different story."
