I recently came across some projected demographic figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau that was part of an ad campaign promoting Mexican beer sales. As you probably already know, the fast-growing Hispanic population in the U.S. is having a profound effect on many urban schools. While some of you may be experiencing the side-effects of this unprecedented change in your own classrooms, others who are entering the workforce will need to be prepared for the dramatic demographic shift that is yet to come. What are your thoughts about the instructional challenges that will face teachers in the future and what preparations do you think should be made before it's too late? Will being bilingual in Spanish become a standard requirement for teaching positions? Please refrain from submitting your political views to avoid being censored.
