Blackburn-Moreno explains the challenges that the Puerto Rico immigrants encountered during the 1950s and 1960's, they had different roots in education other populations. Puerto Rican immigrants were less educated and essentially poor and when they arrived they were ghettoized, settling in El Barrio, the South Bronx, and the L.E.S. Blackburn-Moreno explains that the school systems could not accommodate the Puerto Rican student who were Spanish speaking. Since the school system would discriminate against them, some students would Americanize their names to feel as though they belong. The Puerto Rican community knew that they had to address major issues and economic development and education.
