1968 was a flashpoint for many social causes throughout the country.
Los Angeles, in that year, saw the energence of a new and powerful
local political force--the Chicano movement. Dissatisfaction with
the state of the schools in the Latino community, quickly escalated
to a debate on cultural identity and bi-lingual education. The
issues raised by Sol Castro and others in 1968 are still
"hot-button" topics more than 30 years later.
