Education Guru Tries to Close Latino Education Gap
There is no better time for a Latino to be representing the Department of Education, now that recently released data shows Latinos are lagging behind others when it comes to getting college degrees.
This gap will pose a formidable obstacle for Eduardo Ochoa, assistant secretary of education for the Department of Education. He is led by this lofty White House goal: 51 percent of Americans should hold a college degree by 2020. That will only happen if at least 5.5 million Latinos earn degrees in the next eight years, according to a report by Excelencia in Education.
