Education

Policy Value:

  • Latino communities value education and the opportunities to advance our children’s future through the power of education. Our education system should respect families as a student’s first teacher, thus providing adequate information to our students and their parents regarding their educational choices, from preschool through higher education. Quality education is not a privilege, but rather an important right that should be afforded to all children.
