Latino Heritage Month

ASPIRE Community,
LATINO HERITAGE MONTH is September 15-October 15 every year and the University of Delaware has several events to expose students to the culture, language, history, and societal issues/struggles of Latino/a people.
The bureau projects that the Hispanic school-age population will increase by 166% by 2050 (to 28 million from 11 million in 2006), while the non-Hispanic school-age population will grow by just 4% (to 45 million from 43 million) over this same period. In 2050, there will be more school-age Hispanic children than school-age non-Hispanic white children.
The chances of you having students or working with families that are Latino/a are high and ASPIRE’s mission is: 

To prepare outstanding educators who are well-rounded, critical thinkers committed to the academic success of ALL students.   PLEASE ATTEND
