National Hispanic Heritage Month in Your Child’s School Where Less Information is Moral

Can’t even manage to give it an entire month as it is broken up into two 1/2 month sessions…

National Hispanic Heritage Month
September 15 – October 15

By looking at the curriculum for the various grades it appears that ‘Hispanic Heritage’ does not include the study of Spain~

Tips to our impressionable youth…

You are being taught by the very same type of union members who disrespected several state capitol buildings across your United States of America, this past year with an agenda that is anti-American and injurious to other Americans. It is all about the money for them!

They are also attempting to distort your view of Hispanic Heritage in the classroom. Mexico is not the center of Hispanic Culture because all roads lead to SPAIN. Hispanic Heritage is not a North American or even an American exclusive. Bolivians are Hispanic, Cubans are Hispanic, Puerto Ricans are Hispanic, Filipinos are Hispanic, etc. The Spanish were conquerors or conquistadors and left an immense seeding worldwide of people over several centuries. It is just like Johnny Appleseed, when he seeded apple trees, across the United States.

Ask your teacher, you have the right to know the truth!

His·pan·ic (h-spnk)
1. Of or relating to Spain or Spanish-speaking Latin America.
2. Of or relating to a Spanish-speaking people or culture.
1. A Spanish-speaking person.
2. A U.S. citizen or resident of Latin-American or Spanish descent.
[Latin Hispnicus, from Hispnia, Spain.]
Usage Note: Though often used interchangeably in American English, Hispanic and Latino are not identical terms, and in certain contexts the choice between them can be significant. Hispanic, from the Latin word for “Spain,” has the broader reference, potentially encompassing all Spanish-speaking peoples in both hemispheres and emphasizing the common denominator of language among communities that sometimes have little else in common. Latinowhich in Spanish means “Latin” but which as an English word is probably a shortening of the Spanish word latinoamericanorefers more exclusively to persons or communities of Latin American origin. Of the two, only Hispanic can be used in referring to Spain and its history and culture; a native of Spain residing in the United States is a Hispanic, not a Latino, and one cannot substitute Latino in the phrase the Hispanic influence on native Mexican cultures without garbling the meaning. In practice, however, this distinction is of little significance when referring to residents of the United States, most of whom are of Latin American origin and can theoretically be called by either word. · A more important distinction concerns the sociopolitical rift that has opened between Latino and Hispanic in American usage. For a certain segment of the Spanish-speaking population, Latino is a term of ethnic pride and Hispanic a label that borders on the offensive. According to this view, Hispanic lacks the authenticity and cultural resonance of Latino, with its Spanish sound and its ability to show the feminine form Latina when used of women. Furthermore, Hispanicthe term used by the U.S. Census Bureau and other government agenciesis said to bear the stamp of an Anglo establishment far removed from the concerns of the Spanish-speaking community. While these views are strongly held by some, they are by no means universal, and the division in usage seems as related to geography as it is to politics, with Latino widely preferred in California and Hispanic the more usual term in Florida and Texas. Even in these regions, however, usage is often mixed, and it is not uncommon to find both terms used by the same writer or speaker. See Usage Note at Chicano.
