TOWN HALL ON EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE FOR HISPANIC AMERICANS FRIDAY IN D.C.
Juan Sepulveda, director of White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, will host a town hall-style "Community Conversation" Friday in Washington to gather input on the status of Hispanic education. Friday's event is a targeted conversation with national Hispanic and education associations and scholars.
Sepulveda has been holding similar meetings across the country in recent weeks to learn how Latino education can be improved. And, what the White House Initiative should be doing to spearhead those efforts. Information from the session will be recorded and help serve as a foundation for a new presidential executive order to govern the White House Initiative and promote educational excellence for Hispanic Americans.
