On Wednesday, January 23, Claudia Galindo, assistant professor of language, literacy, and culture, spoke with NPR education correspondent Claudio Sanchez for an “All Things Considered” segment about a study showing that Latino children make up For academic shortcomings with strong social skills.
“We found that Latino kids bring to school strong emotional skills and strong social skills, which means they know how to share with their peers. They know how to follow instructions. They know how to listen. And one other thing that we found is that these kids are being raised in very supportive and warm family environments,” Galindo said.
