Two days ago, I went to an elementary school for a career day. I went to give a presentation about Latinitas. To my surprise I found out that most of the kids didn’t know what the term “Latino/a” means.
Some kids said that “Latina” is a singer or an actress. I found that this was interesting because the elementary school that I went to is composed approximately of 95% Latinos.
Also, I asked the children if they could name a Latino or Latina that is on the media and some of their top answers were:
I wonder whose fault is it for not teaching the children that they are Latinos. Is it the teacher’s fault for not proving that information? Or is it the fault of the parents for not educating their kids?
