Why are More Latino Kids Missing out on Preschool?
Report shows 63% of the community’s kids are missing out on the early childhood development opportunity.
Not many Latino children are attending preschool.
About 63 percent of Latino children didn't attend school compared with 50 percent of non-Hispanic white children, according to a report.
This means Latino children have the lowest preschool attendance among any racial or ethnic group in the U.S..
The report also showed these children are more likely to live in poverty, have a head of the household who doesn’t have a high school diploma, and live in a single-parent home.
Preschool, however, can change that.
Missing out on early childhood development such a preschool can lead to higher unemployment, incarceration, and poverty rates.
