  • Let’s resolve to educate Latino students – for everone’s benefit

    by Edward J. Mc. Elroy

    As a former social studies teacher, I am always amazed at how a nation’s history repeats itself and­ how many among us fail to acknowledge it. Take the United States at the turn of the 20th century. That’s when our country experienced one of its major influxes of newcomers. Waves of immigrants made their way to our shores.
