CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-

The public school system had to figure out how to best transition a child from one language to another. It was difficult at the time because not many people were being trained as bilingual educators. At the time of the late 60’s there were a lot of advocacy movements, one of the most well known where The Young Lords, which came out of the Civil Rights. The Young Lords started in Chicago and then later in New York. They had the characteristics of a gang and believed that Aspira was not radical enough. But Aspira was created for students. Around the same time you also had the first elected Puerto Rican officials that were going to the state assembly.
