Let’s face it, the future of our country heavily depends on the future of our Latino community. Not only are we the fastest growing group in the country but we’re also the youngest. Right now 22% of the K-12 population is a Latinito(a). College completion continues to be a challenge. We’ve heard the cry for help loud and clear from many organizations. However Excellencia has taken an innovative approach to the problem. They’re offering solutions and lessons learnt from colleges that are delivering results. We are honor to bring Excelencia to our traditional Thursday Twitter party to talk about the main findings of the report. Come with your questions, good & bad college experiences and plenty of suggestions. We want to celebrate those who are doing a great job and make sure to call out those who are failing our kids and their dreams.
