The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive historical and contemporary view of the education of Latinos in the United States. It is unique in that it provides readers with accurate information that will deepen their understanding and knowledge about Latinos from preschool to higher education, as well as in special education, gifted education, and migrant and urban education. Topics such as bilingualism and teacher preparation are an integral part of this thorough and eloquent book.
Among culturally and linguistically diverse groups in the United States, the Latino population is the largest and fastest growing. Thus, to prepare for the growing numbers of Latino children and to make the most of their education, educators, researchers, and policymakers must recognize and build on the invaluable resource represented by Latino students. The information provided is based on current research and practice in the field. Our school system continues to underestimate the cognitive and socioemotional potential of Latino students by its limited awareness and representation of the Latino cultural characteristics, social dynamics, interests and abilities, bilingualism, as well as confronting socioeconomic challenges and educational needs. This situation clearly demonstrates a need for a reformulation of educational practice at all grade levels and for the provision of accurate information to assist practitioners and researchers in their knowledge and practice.

Set in 1970's Balham, Clapham and Battersea, as a teenager sex is making its way into your every thought. Girls or boys are all you think about and sleeping with one is something you think about even more. But girls, to this boy, are another race altogether. How do you even talk to them? We follow the young Mike Quin, known as Tiger, on his journey of sexual discovery that takes him to 1970s Soho and a house in Balham that doubles as a brothel. There he meets a prostitute called Anniegirl who wouldn't mind showing Tiger a thing or two about sex, but he is far too shy to share her delights. Tiger finally meets a girl from his childhood called Rita. She has never forgotten him. She decides Tiger will be the one to end her curse of virginity. Tiger is not too sure, despite all his friends having managed it. He is the last virgin in Balham, according to Terry... This story is being written by the grown up Mike Quin while he works as a mini cab driver both day and night but for very different clients. In London at night he finds himself unknowingly driving a high class Arab hooker, Roxanne, to her clients. Soon Mike finds himself falling in love with a very complex and angry Roxanne, saving her more than once. However, what would his wife think if she knew of this platonic friendship? The story slides between the two versions of the same man and nothing has really changed. Women problems are still very much in his life, just as they have been when they suddenly came into his life at an innocent 16 years of age... REVIEWS FROM READERS Mary Chapman: I enjoyed the book.

"Ingred! Ingred, old girl! I say, Ingred! Wherever have you taken yourself off to?" shouted a boyish voice, as its owner, jumping an obstructing gooseberry bush, tore around the corner of the house from the kitchen garden on to the strip of rough lawn that faced the windows. "Hullo! Cuckoo! Coo-ee! In-gred!"
