Great Short Doc on Ethnic Studies by Alexandra Hidalgo

A Video Argument for Ethnic Studies

I couldn't help but want to share this video argument by friend and colleague Alexandra Hidalgo on Ethnic Studies and raising bilingual children. Not only does she respond well to potential criticisms and fears of implementing ethnic studies into education, but she also has two niños the same age as mine (the older one even shares the same name as my older son). If you watch all the way to the end, you may see a brief glance of yours truly.

Note: this video argument was originally posted to Literacy & NCTE: the Official Blog of National Council for Teachers of English
