Report Stresses Early Education for Latino Community

The new report “Transforming Early Learning: Education Equity for Young Latinos”—from the Latino Policy Forum—argues that a growing Latino school population and a continuing achievement gap means early schooling is crucial, even for our country's economic viability. Reyna Hernandez is the lead writer of the report. She and Latino Policy Forum executive director Sylvia Puente explain what the report means for the Latino community.

The Latino Policy Forum and the National Council of La Raza are hosting a symposium on Latino Early Care and Education Policy today at National Louis University.
