So, I'm registering my daughter for school and there is a form asking information about her race and ethnicity. Here is what it says.......
Is your child Hispanic/Latino? yes or no
This question is about ethnicity, not race.
What is your child's race? American Indian, Asian, African American, Pacific Islander or Caucasion.
Here is the deilema.....my daughter is half Mexican and half caucasion. For her race, I want to put both, but it is not an option. When I look up the difference between the two, because of the way we are raising her and the culture we live by, she would not be considered hispanic ethnicity, but is a hispanic race.
What would you do? I want her placed in the multiracial category for reporting purposes. Maybe I should mark no for hispanic ethnicity and add a race choice to the form?
