A new nationwide poll highlights the obstacles faced by Latino students and their families. The poll found that many Latino parents encounter a language barrier in accessing information about their children's education. Only 20% of Latino parents who don't speak English well reported that they communicated "extremely well" with their children's school. The poll also raises doubts about the effectiveness of "dual-language immersion" program that would teach students in Spanish and English and have become increasingly popular in K-12 schools.
