President To Hold Historic Education Town Hall

MIAMI - – Univision will host “Noticias Univision Presenta: Es El Momento – El Presidente, LosHispanos y la Educación” (The Moment is Now: The President, Hispanics and Education) on Monday, March 28, 2011 from Bell Multicultural High School in the nationÂ’s capital. Hosted by Emmy-award winning journalist and co-anchor of “Noticiero Univision,” Jorge Ramos, the town hall will give President Barack Obama the opportunity to engage with students, parents and teachers in an important dialogue on education and Hispanic educational attainment. The historic event will be broadcast on the Univision Network on March 28 at 7pm ET / PT, 6 pm CT.

“As part of our mission to inform, entertain and empower Hispanic America, we are thrilled to be able to provide the Hispanic community the opportunity to engage directly on one of the most important issues impacting our ability to remain competitive globally,” said Cesar Conde, president, Univision Networks. “It is vital that Univision continues to be front and center with news and information that can help Hispanics maximize their educational potential.”

Topics to be discussed at the town hall with President Obama will include better preparing students for college and 21st century careers, greater parental engagement in education, and the politics of reforming the educational system.

The education town hall with President Obama is part of UnivisionÂ’s “Es el Momento” (The Moment is Now) initiative focused on creating a college bound culture by engaging parents and youth, and connecting the Hispanic community with the resources and information needed to help increase educational attainment. Univision recently launched the second phase of this initiative highlighting the importance of children having role models in their lives, encouraging parents to teach by example and instill in their children the importance of education, as the key to their success.
