Obama To Revise Hispanic Education Initiative

Editor's note: Tuesday's signing ceremony will be shown here on Black Radio Network. From the home page, please click on the White House icon in the upper left corner of the page.

 

 

WASHINGTON - President Obama will sign the Obama Administration’s Executive Order on the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics in a ceremony in the East Room of the White House tomorrow, October 19, 2010. The ceremony will follow a National Education Summit and Call to Action hosted by the U.S. Department of Education that was held today, which brought Administration officials together with experts in education and Hispanic community leaders from around the country on issues ranging from early childhood learning to higher education.

 


To reach the ambitious education goals President Obama has set for our nation and ensure America’s future competitiveness in a global economy, we must raise Hispanic education attainment at every level. The revised executive order will place a high priority on action designed to do exactly that.

 

 


The White House Initiative was established in September 1990 to provide advice and guidance to the Secretary of Education on education issues related to Hispanics and address academic excellence and opportunities for the Hispanic community. It was subsequently continued by President William J. Clinton and President George W. Bush. Under President Obama, the office is led by Juan Sepulveda who has taken aggressive steps to hear from communities across the country about what works and what doesn’t work and how the Initiative can better serve the Hispanic community.
