“Agreed, part of the point in my assertion that we don't live in a vacuum. I think Latinos in particular [and perhaps other groups as well] just haven't internalized it. Thanks so much for the comment!”

“The most important thing is that all underrepresented groups use the internet as a tool to unite and spread Ideas through, like in Egypt, Social networking is the modern day field worker song that lets us workers know whats going on on the other side of the farm without anyone knowing messages are being passed. It should show us all the oppressive laws come from the same groups so working together should be in our best interest. In your opinion does Huffpo Latin have more informative (better) stories than Huffpo Black.”

“Hi, inthedesert, thanks for the comment. Just want to clarify a couple of things:
- Nowhere in the article does it say that this is a Latino-only issue. Not being competitive or being perceived as a low innovation country on a global scale is a problem that equally affects all of us and our future.
- The point of the article was to start a discussion about changing the cultural mentality that takes all of us away from enjoying the learning process [even adults of all ethnic backgrounds who are not attending school anymore]; not about blaming the educational system. I believe learning is [or should be] a life-long endeavor that shouldn't begin or end with school.”

“Love the anecdote! Using entertainment and humor was one key point brought up during the WH conversation. I see it work for example, with my daughter. Her and her classmates love to watch the Big Bang Theory, then look up the different theories online so that they can joke about them at school the next day. They have a blast, and now have developed an actual interest in Physics.
I think that can be applied further for example, by bringing things like social media into the classroom [older kids are all into social media anyway] and turning 'dull' things like homework into engaging, fun activities.”
