Sal y Paula changed Chicano life in education forever. School wouldn't be the same without them. Now, High school drop out rates are going up again and most of the teens dropping out are Mexican Americans or Chicanos. Yo no soy Chicana because I was born in Mexico, but I know the pain of discrimination and without the experience there wouldn't be a goal. Without the goal, there wouldn't be an accomplishment. The reason I went to this page is because I wanted to know more about the East L.A. 13. I saw walkout the movie and I really did not have much detail about the East L.A. 13. I was curious so i just googled it. Thanks for the info.

"The script got a little fanciful," says Castro of the screenplay by several writers. "When we really got out of jail, there was nobody there. Ni las moscas (not even the flies).""
