Toolkit for Hispanic Families
The following message is from Margaret Spellings, U.S. Secretary of Education.

“We want to make sure all Hispanic families know about the help available to them under NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND. We want them to know that students can qualify for free tutoring when schools fall short of their responsibilities. We want them to know that families can ask schools to translate information free of charge. We want families to know how they can help their children with reading and homework. In other words, we want Hispanic families to know how they can get more information and get more involved.

That’s why we created this tool kit. It gives families the information they need to help their children get ahead in school and in life. And we want to make sure Hispanic families get this information in a language they can understand, so we’re making the tool kit available in both English and Spanish.”
