Reader objection

A few readers this week have called to complain about a Newspaper In Education piece that the Contra Costa Times has been running. The NIE segment features Hispanics who have been successful as part of NIE's education of Hispanic Heritage Week. NIE provides these segments as educational tools for school children. They are used in classrooms as learning guides. The newspaper participates by publishing the educational pieces and then delivering the newspapers to classrooms so they can be used by teachers. The three or four readers who have called are concerned about the newspaper highlighting the achievements of Hispanics and see it as an indication of too much attention being paid to Hispanics at the expense of Caucasians. These have been interesting conversations to have with readers this week.
