The other ESL is Asian. Hispanic children typically are at a disadvantage solely because their parents never learned the phonics portion of the language, or do not know the language itself.

I agree, it is unfortunate for the first child, but if the first and second child are close in age it is beneficial so they can learn skills together and the first child won't feel as if they aren't smart.
