The percentage of Latino children attending preschool fell substantially during the nation's deep recession, according to a study released April 8, 2011 by the University of California, Berkeley. This turnaround - after decades of rising participation in child care and preschool options by all families - jeopardizes state and federal efforts to narrow persisting gaps in children's early school achievement and raise the quality of the workforce. Reyna Hernandez, a policy analyst at the Latino Policy Forum, discusses the study and implications for Latino communities.
