“Latino parents in Brewster say for years their kids have been treated as second-class citizens. Schools in the central Washington town are 75 percent Hispanic but the parents say the kids suffered from chronic low expectations. So they sued the district for racial discrimination…and won. It’s the first time Latinos have brought a civil rights case against a Washington school. For our series The Learning Curve, Chana Joffe-Walt has the story.”
