As a result, they also have to work in the “3D” occupations of modern America. However, it is entirely plausible that the one correcting factor is the level of education, which translates to English and professional competency. When education level is compared in a controlled setting with other racial groups, differences in employability and wage earning significantly decrease. This reduction in economic gap might be observed more concretely with younger generations of Latin Americans who were either born in the United States or immigrated at young ages if they are given the same access to K-12 education as native Americans.

Bush signed into law the "Improving Head Start for School Readiness Act of 2007," a bill to reauthorize Head Start. This law was to improve the program quality, expand access, and provide comprehensive developmental services, including health, nutritional, educational, social and other services, to economically disadvantaged preschool children and their families. It addresses several longstanding Administration priorities, such as increased competition among Head Start providers, improved coordination of early childhood delivery systems, and stronger educational performance standards. Greater collaboration among Head Start agencies, schools, and other programs serving young children, will help ensure our investments are better aligned and more effective.

I will have to plan and develop policies and procedures that support our diverse family. As a leader, I will have to research the different cultures that will exist within my school in order to treat everyone fairly, equitably, and with dignity and respect. According to ISLCC standard 6 the administrator should ensure the environment in which schools operate is influenced on behalf of students and their families. As a leader, he/she should know how to communicate with the decision makers as well as with the families of the students, and his/her faculty and staff.
