Univision special to focus on Latino college completion
In a national town hall discussion from the campus of Florida International University, Univison will broadcast a national special at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, on the issue of Latino college completion.
"La Educacion esta a tu Alcance," or "Education is Within Your Reach," invites "Hispanic America to join the national conversation between students, educators and community leaders." Statistics show that 69 percent of Latino high school graduates enroll in college, while graduation rates lag.
The show will be moderated by Maria Elena Salinas and Pamela Silva Conde and will feature experts, including Deborah Santiago of Excelencia in Education; Luis Avila of the National Council of La Raza; Rick Cruz of the Houston Independent School District; and Francisco Guajardo of the University of Texas.
