For the first time in American history, a majority of kids going to public schools are students of color.
And here in Texas, thanks to Spanish speaking students, education expert Jean Burk says that can have an impact on your child.
“In your average 55-minute class period, there is only about 19 minutes of actual teaching,” Burk stated.
So how can we resolve this?
“If the parents would take the role and teach their kids how to speak English at home and take some of the burden off of the schools, then I think they can come to school already educated,” Burk explained.
Burk also says they might be home schooled for the entirety of their education.
