Association Calls Summit on Education


The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) will convene its fourth annual summit on the state of education for Latino students, September 22-24, the NALEO Educational Fund has announced.

Latino state legislators, municipal officers and school board members were invited to attend.

“As the second largest population group in the United States, the educational attainment of Latino youth is intrinsically connected to the nation’ future success,” NALEO said. “Demographers have long projected the social and economic trajectory of the country’ shifting population trends. Census population estimates indicate that the Latino population will continue a rapid rate of growth. The steady increase of this very youthful population makes it imperative that Latino youth benefit from full access to educational experiences of the highest quality.”

Topics will include learning in the pre-k and the early grades,

the Federal No Child Left Behind Act, English Language Learner success, school leader and teacher quality, high school equity, higher education access and the achievement gap for Latino students.
