Study: Latino children's language skills are lagging by age 2
from The Washington Post
Nine-month-old Latino babies have the same language and cognitive abilities as their white peers, but by the time they reach age 2, they lag significantly behind, according to new research from the University of California at Berkeley. The research suggests that prekindergarten may be too late to start trying to close persistent academic achievement gaps between Latino and white students, said Bruce Fuller, the study's lead author and professor of education and public policy at UC Berkeley.
