In a recent article in The New York Times, Patricia Leigh Brown takes us into a classroom and onto the farm fields in Salinas, California. The scenes in the article appear familiar as a decade ago, I worked in Seaside, over the hills and around the corner from Salinas. From picking leafy greens to plump strawberries, itinerant farmworkers labor long hours. Read about the children of farmworkers in the third-grade class of Oscar Ramos.
