Relevancy Current statistics show that 1 in 5 children lives in poverty (Children’s Defense Fund, 2001), and about 1 in 10 children have limited proficiency in English (Kindler, 2002).


According to the Florida Department of Education PK-12 Public School Data Publications and Reports (2017), the total population enrolled during the 2016-2017 school year consisted of  32.4% Hispanic/Latino students . Additionally, Hispanic/Latino students made up 30.4% of students with exceptionalities-- excluding gifted, 79.0% of English Language Learners (ELL) population, and 84.3% of students with disabilities and limited English proficiency .


Variance Children of color , poverty , and disability are highly variant on the criteria of normalcy within schools, and are subjected to greater unfair teacher attitudes , expectations, and actions. Gay (2002)
