Ensuring America’s Future: An Educational Roadmap for Latinos
The Bill & Melinda Gates and Lumina foundations have taken a lead in improving Latino education outcomes, especially with a recent initiative to support the organization Excelencia in Education which works to accelerate Latino success in higher education by linking research, policy and practice to inform policymakers who in turn advance programs that support higher educational achievement for Latinos. Led by Sarita Brown, who served under President Clinton as Executive Director of the White House Initiative for Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, Excelencia is a one-stop shop for excellent research, programs and initiatives that help to serve Latino students in their college preparation and beyond.
Today, Wednesday, March 9th, Excelencia released "Roadmap for Ensuring America's Future", a report that identifies specific national, state and local actions that can accelerate Latino degree attainment and entry into the workforce. Working with partner organizations around the country Excelencia will use data to track progress toward Latino college completion for the nation.
