Vme TV Addresses Hispanic Education in the United States

 

“Los Hispanos y La Educacion” will air on November 29, 2013 at 9 p.m. ET on Vme TV

Vme TV will broadcast ‘Los Hispanos y La Educacion’, a special program which takes a look at education in the United States through the eyes of two  Hispanic educators, Dr. Eduardo J. Padron, president, Miami Dade College, and Ronald Blackburn Moreno, CEO, ASPIRA. The program will air on November 29, 2013 at 9 p.m. ET.

The interviews, which will be conducted by Mexican journalist and lawyer, Alonso Castillo, will bring light to relevant topics such as dropout rates, the federal budget and increase of enrollment in higher education, among others. Additionally, the guests will offer insight into ways that the Hispanic community can advance and increase professional achievement and leadership in the nation.

Padron, who is also on the President’s Advisory Commission of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, offers viewers years of experience as President of the nation’s largest institution of higher education.

As the CEO of ASPIRA, Moreno works to provide advocacy, as well as educational and leadership programs throughout the United States to encourage Hispanic students to further their education. In August 2013, ASPIRA and Vme TV joined forces to enhance Spanish-language educational programming in the United States. As part of this partnership, the organizations will work together to design, develop, and produce the content that will be broadcast on Vme Television and cross promoted by both organizations.
