Bilingual Education Should Be @ HOME!

Bilingual education in the US should not be in the schools. It should be at HOME!

It is interesting how there is such a push in this country NOT to learn your native tongue. Meanwhile in Puerto Rico English classes start in PRE-SCHOOL.

Tell me again- WHY aren’t you learning Spanish?
WHY aren't you teaching Spanish to your little ones???

Corre la voz….

Peruvian Children Saving Ancient City of Chan Chan

The City of Chan Chan is the largest mud-brick city in Latin America and part of Peru’s history- believed to be the capital of the Pre-Inca Chimu. Now, Chan Chan is being used as a "classroom" for elementary and middle school students.

The students not only study conservation procedures but also learn how to make adobe and mud-bricks using the same techniques that Pre-Incan Peruvians used.

Cristobal Campana, head of the Chan Chan conservation team, says, “The idea is for students to be able to identify with their heritage and assume the commitment to look after it.”

Talk about hands-on learning!
Imagine what else they can build and create!

Mexico Rewrites History

A new history textbook distributed free because school history textbooks are "continually being improved" says Mexico's Asst. Education Sec'y Fernando Gonzalez.

Opponents say one of the most important eras- the arrival of the Spanish - is OMITTED.

That’s right, the history books end before Cortes arrived in 1519.

Gonzalez defends the books saying the Spanish conquest should and would be studied in depth by secondary school pupils.

The FALL of the Mayan Empire?
What about the FALL of the Spanish Empire?

Michael Jackson Sighting

Latin America Mourns The King of Pop

The untimely death of controversial pop music icon Michael Jackson stunned the world, and Latin America was no exception. ...

Thousands of Latin American fans promised to remember him forever as they displayed their grief with tears, dancing, impersonations and even plans to erect statues in his honor.

In Mexico City, according to Reforma, thousands of his fans gathered around the statue of the Angel of Independence t...withan impromptu mixture of tears, music, applause and photographs.

According to El Nacional, the tribute was organized by Esteban Rubio, a 30-year-old Mexican who has spent half his life imitating Jackson and recently taught actor
Diego Luna to dance like him for his role in the 2007 movie “Mister Lonely”.

In Brazil, according to ANSA, Rio de Janeiro’s Dona Marta favela, the shantytown where Jackson filmed his 1996 video “They Don’t Care About Us”, declared itself in
mourning, and community leaders announced that they would put up a statue in the entertainer’s honor.

Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin told El Nacional that “the light he gave us on stage will continue to illuminate all of us who saw the master – pure musical inspiration”.

OBAMA and El Gran Combo!

In this monumental historical event,
Inauguration 2009, it reminds me of ...
El Gran Combo!

Remember that song,
"Si Dios Fuera Negro" ?
They say, "What if the president was black?"

Brings tears of happiness to my eyes! On
Inauguration Day 2009 DO pause.
DO watch the Inauguration.
This IS history.
If you are working STOP.
Put on the radio if you can't get to a TV.
Don't have a radio? BUY one this weekend
Whatever it takes. Don't make excuses.

DON"T let your grandchildren read it
to u from their history books.
DON'T live life passivey.

If you are a teacher - it is your DUTY to STOP
and put on the radio.

If you are a parent with small children, watch it
and TALK about it with your children.

Inauguration 2009.
The biggest Inauguration since Kennedy!

See you at the Inauguration!

SING the song with me at http://ladivalatina.com/obama09.html

Si Dios fuera negro -mi compay- todo cambiaría
Fuera nuestra raza -mi compay- la que mandaría

Negro el presidente y el gobernador
Negro el abogado y negro el doctor compay...........


Thanks for reading my blog!
