A generation ago, the United States ranked first in the world in the percentage of adults with college degrees. Today, our nation ranks 12th. Without significant change in college attainment rates, the United States will face a shortage of 23 million college-educated adults in the workforce in the next 15 years—a crippling blow to U.S. economic competitiveness. The growing Hispanic population will be critical in meeting future workforce needs.
Join Rep. Charles A. Gonzalez, Rep. Henry Cuellar, moderator Norma Garcia, News Anchor, Noticiero Telemundo Dallas and San Antonio, and other special guests as they resume the national education dialogue in San Antonio on Friday, March 30. Engage in strategic conversations about the economic importance of increasing Hispanic education and the role and importance that public/private partnerships play in education attainment. Hear Latino students provide real-world educational perspectives in the popular “In Their Own Words” segment. Finally, continue the conversation at a networking reception with special guests, panelists, and students, sponsored by Comcast/NBCUniversal/Telemundo.
