Letter to the Editor | Promoting Positive Change

To the Editor:

The article, “Landmark Education Case Marks 50 Years” (Feb. 10), is very empowering to Soledad’s population.

It sends the clear message that minority students and parents have a voice to stand up against injustice and inequality. It is essential to empower communities and work collectively with community leaders and legal organizations to impact change.

According to the Soledad Unified School District, the School Accountability Report Card (SACR) reveals that more than 90% of students in the district are Hispanic/Latino, which is present all across the district.

Also, 90% of all students are considered socioeconomically disadvantaged, which can be inferred based on enrollment numbers that Hispanic/Latino students are also socially disadvantaged.

It is important to note cases as Diana v. California State Board of Education to empower our communities and promote a positive change for all students while shaping our educational system.
