Passing on American Values

Michael Barone has some interesting statistics regarding the number of Hispanics in the United States by generation. While 14% of the general population is Hispanic, 19% of those under age 18 would be categorized as such.

Some people, one supposes, are concerned that nearly 1 in 5 minors in the United States has such a different cultural background, but there really should be no fear. By age 18, many of these kids will graduate from high school and be sufficiently Americanized that they, too, will not be able to read or write English -- just like their peers.
