What do you think politicians are telling Latinos about education these days? I recently had the opportunity to hear the thinking of Sec. Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sec. Julian Castro, Dr. Ben Carson and others LIVE at the 2015 NALEO conference in Las Vegas.
I attended to discuss educational policy and share research with attendees and to gauge their perspectives on a variety of issues as being experience by Latino elected officials and others engaged in policy making across the nation.
Who is NALEO?
National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) and the NALEO Educational Fund are the “nation’s leading nonprofit organization that facilitates the full participation of Latinos in the American political process, from citizenship to public service.”
The NALEO Educational Fund is a nonpartisan 501 (c)(3) organization first established in 1981, that carries out [their] “mission through programs that integrate Latinos fully into American political society, provide professional development opportunities and technical assistance to the nation’s more than 6,000 Latino elected and appointed officials, and monitor and conduct advocacy on issues important to the Latino community and our political participation.
I have Storified the event, which allows me to include Tweets, text, photos, videos etc. What is Storify? It “helps making sense of what people post on social media.” Users curate voices and turn them into stories.
