Hispanic Heritage Month Ends: CHCI’s Mission Continues
As Hispanic Heritage Month festivities draw to a close, the mission of Developing the Next Generation of Latino Leaders has never been more crucial. Please take a moment to take part in history, spread the word about CHCI program application deadlines, and help CHCI win $25,000 for its programs.
White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics
The U.S. Department of Education kicked-off its National Education Summit yesterday with a call to action to raise awareness about the education disparity within the Hispanic community. Administration experts along with Hispanic community leaders from around the country addressed issues ranging from early childhood learning to higher education.
Today President Obama will sign an executive order on the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics in a ceremony in the East Room of the White House. The revised executive order places a high priority on ensuring America’s future global competitiveness by raising Hispanic education attainment at every level.
Tune in to watch the historic signing.
