The Spanish Speaking population in the United States

  1. 1. Spanish Speaking within the United States
  2. 2. 37.6 million Spanish Speaking in the United States above 5yrs. old 34.8 million are Hispanics 2.8 million are non-Hispanic Who are the 2.8 million non-Hispanics who speak Spanish at home? Some 59% trace their ancestry to non-Spanish European countries such as Germany, Ireland, England and Italy. An additional 12% say they are of African American descent. …The racial composition of non-Hispanic Spanish speakers mirrors that of the U.S. nonHispanic population. Overall, three-quarters (77%) of non-Hispanics who speak Spanish at home are white, 14% are black, and 9% say they belong to some other racial group. Data from the U.S. Census 2010 http://www.census.gov Pew Research: http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/ 2013/08/13/spanish-is-the-most spoken-nonenglish-language-in-u-shomes-even-among-nonhispanics/
  3. 3. 308,745,538 Total U.S. Population 2010 Census 37.6 million Speak Spanish at home who are above 5yrs. old in the U.S. at home who are above 5yrs. old in the U.S. Data from the U.S. Census 2010 http://www.census.gov Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispanophone#List_of_countries_with_Spanish-speaking_populations
  4. 4. Immigration: “We need immigration reform that will secure our borders, and… that finally brings the 12 million people who are here illegally out of the shadows... We must assert our values and reconcile our principles as a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws.” Barack Obama, June 28, 2008 “America’s immigration system is outdated, unsuited to the needs of our economy and to the values of our country. We should not be content with laws that punish hard-working people and deny businesses willing workers and invite chaos at our border.” George W. Bush, February 2, 2005
  5. 5. Oppression: Oppression of the Spanish Speaking population is exaggerated by language issues and impacts education, jobs, housing and creates segregation at all levels of society.
  6. 6. Discrimination An Associated Press poll from 2010 found that 61 percent of people said that Hispanics face significant discrimination. There has been a backlash against illegal immigration that has created a divide amongst Latinos in the United States. It is leading to deeper concerns about discrimination against Latinos (including U.S. born and those who immigrated legally).
  7. 7. Privilege Colorism: “a preference toward White skin both within the United States and within and among Latinos” (Quiros & Araujo Dawson, 2013). Colorism is common in Hispanic countries as well as the United States. Lighter skin is favored as darker skin is connected to historically oppressed populations of African descent and indigenous peoples. Felix v. Manquez in 1980 found that color discrimination is a violation of Title VII of the Equal Rights Act of 1964. Manquez alleged that Felix, both Latina women, did not promote Manquez due the darker color of her skin. Latin American “Telenovelas” cast actors who are lighter skinned, or “blonde”, in starring roles. Darker skinned actors are cast as maids (Jones, 2004).

  12. 12. Education “Probably nothing derails an adolescent’s future more certainly than disconnecting from school, losing interest in learning, and ultimately dripping out of school” (National Research Council Report on High-Risk Youth, 1993, p. 417) The Bilingual Education Act (BEA) or Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESAA) of 1968 was the first federal legislation related to bilingual education and allowing for the allocation of funds to support school districts. ESEA expired in 2002 and was replaced by No Child Left Behind (NCLB). Lau vs. Nichols (1974) found that discrimination based on language minority status was a violation of Title Vi of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In education, language has been the controversy in education between assimilation and multiculturalism (Weise & Garcia 1998). Historic background of bilingual education video.

The bilingual education act: Language minority students and equal educational opportunity. Bilingual Research Journal, 22(1), 1-18. doi: Programs, such as Success For All (SFA) vacillate between bilingual education where students are taught core subjects in their own language while learning English and immersion programs where 30 minutes per day are for learning English with the remainder of the day in a mainstream classroom. Programs such as Success for All incorporate whole school reform using cooperative learning are showing the greatest gains for Spanish speaking students (Calderon, Slavin,& Sanchez, 2011). The drop out rate for Hispanic students in Colorado is 6.2% as compared to 2.3% for White students. (Colorado Department of Education, 2009). Nationwide the rates are 14% and 5%, respectively (National Center for Education Statistics, 2011). Factors influencing drop outs (Behnke, Gonzalez, & Cox, 2010): • Economic support to the family • Personal problems, including pregnancy • Academic difficulty • Peer pressure

  15. 15. Health Care …there is a need and an opportunity to understand how immigration reform will meet health care reform during the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. ….. Lack of progress on immigration reform has placed financial pressures on safety-net health care organizations and created ethical challenges for health care professionals seeking to provide good care to their undocumented patients: how should we act now to prevent these problems going forward?

  17. 17. Lessons Learned: Population Growth and Spanish Speaking Between 2005 and 2050, the nation’s population will increase to 438 million from 296 million, a rise of 142 million people that represents growth of 48%. The Hispanic population, 42 million in 2005, will rise to 128 million in 2050, tripling in size. Latinos will be 29% of the population, compared with 14% in 2005.

  18. 18. Lessons Learned Around Immigration & Policy The magnitudes of the costs and benefits of illegal immigration hold several important lessons for policymakers. One is that not withstanding all of the focus and controversy surrounding illegal immigration, the fate of the US economy is not riding on the country’s policy toward unauthorized workers. Allowing a few more or a few less unauthorized immigrants into the country would not have dire consequences. Reducing government benefits to the unauthorized population is not a meaningful option, given that the primary benefits they receive are in the form of public education, to which their access is constitutionally guaranteed, and Medicaid for their US-born children. Hanson, G. The Economics and Policy of Illegal Immigration in the United States. Migration Policy Institute (2009) p. 11
  19. 19. Lessons Learned Education Bilingual education was formally initiated as part of the Civil Rights act. This was new information for me as I related that legislation to the rights of Black Americans. The history of bilingual education was also new as it was purposefully used to force immigrants to break ties with their native countries. Racism in Latin American countries has the same basis related to the darkness of a person’s skin as it does in the US. This remains ironic to me as most White people want to be darker, but this does not equate to a negative state. English language learners are not prepared to learn without support in the time that has been allowed in most school systems. The expectation is that children be mainstreamed within three years. Although they may have acquired spoken English skills, this does not equate to being able to complete most educational tasks; this advanced English understanding takes up to seven years to solidify.
