TO THE EDITOR:

Being Hispanic, knowing that the word yeso, as the Velasquez Spanish and English Dictionary verifies, “Yeso (n.) Gypsum, gypse, sulphate of lime, plaster of Paris,” I shudder when a student tells me that he/she goes to “Yeah-so” Elementary!

I imagine that each student is taught from day one that he/she is now in “Yeah-so” Elementary! Probably, even the Hispanic personnel at Yeso call it “Yeah-so!”
