Teach Latin American History in New York State

Currently, my New York City public school does not specifically teach Latin American history.  However, a great percentage of my school's population are of Hispanic / Latin American decent.  Our school's history curriculum should reflect the population that it serves.  

Hispanic people are the largest minority in the United States.  New York is home to roughly 3.6 million Hispanic people.  New York City has the largest population of Dominicans and Puerto Ricans outside of their respective countries.  

Therefore, we believe New York should teach Latin American history in its public schools.
