Why aren’t Hispanics succeeding like Asians, Jews, and other immigrant groups in America? Herman Badillo's answer is as politically incorrect as the question: Hispanics simply don’t put the same emphasis on education as other immigrant groups. As the nation’s first Puerto Rican–born U.S. congressman, the trailblazing Badillo once supported bilingual education and other government programs he thought would help the Hispanic community. But he came to see that the real path to prosperity, political unity, and the American mainstream is self-reliance, not big government. Now Badillo is a champion of one standard of achievement for all races and ethnicities. In this surprising and controversial manifesto, you will learn: Why Hispanic culture’s trouble with education, democracy, and economics stems from Mother Spain and the “five-hundred year siesta” she induced in Latin America. Why the Congressman who drafted the first Spanish-English bilingual education legislation now believes that bilingual education hurts students more than it helps. Why “social promotion” — putting minority students’ self-esteem ahead of their academic performance and then admitting them to college unprepared — continues to this day, despite the system’s documented failures and injustices. How self-identifying as “Hispanic” or “white” or “black” undermines achievement, and what lessons we can learn from Latin American countries, where one’s race is irrelevant. With Central and Latin America exporting a large portion of their poor, Hispanics are on the way to becoming a majority in the United States... but one with all the problems of a minority culture. Badillo’s solution to this problem relies on traditional values: hard work, education, and achievement. His lessons are important not only for Hispanics but for every American.

In 1896, the School Reform Law provided the reorganization of the New York City Board of Education & the creation of the first public high schools in the city. In September of 1897, the Boys' High School, later named DeWitt Clinton High School, & the Girls' High School, later named Wadleigh High School, were opened in Manhattan. The third school to open was the North Side, in what is now the Bronx. There were both male & female students so it was named the Mixed High School &, soon after, the Peter Cooper High School. It was, in 1901, renamed Morris High School in honor of Gouverneur Morris, the penman of the Constitution. The study is chronological. It has a brief historical background of the New York public school system between 1805 & 1896, including the reform movement led by Nicholas Murray Butler. This is followed by an explanation of the changes in the Board of Ed between 1896 & 1904 including City Superintendent William Maxwell's contributions. The major portion of the book is the history of Morris High School from 1897, when it opened, to 1904, when its new building was dedicated. The Morris High School building was to be the master work of its architect, C.B.J. Snyder.
