Two Tales. One Article. Differing Perspectives.

The Wall Street Journal shares an interesting story about Laura and Ivan entitled the “Tale of Two Students.” The article describes the educational paths of two former gang members and how their early education choices are now impacting their educations. One is going to college the other is not. Read the article to find out more. I encourage you to also read through the comments section to see the diverging perspectives on Laura and Ivan’s experiences – some illustrate cultural misconceptions that still exist about Hispanics (and society) while others are simply politically driven.
