President Barack Obama on Tuesday will renew a major initiative aimed at boosting academic achievement among Hispanic students.
The news delighted South Florida educators, who said local students would reap the benefits of a national dialogue on education and the Hispanic community.
“It’s an idea whose time has come,” said Miami-Dade schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, who will travel to the White House Tuesday to help launch the initiative. “The face of America has changed. It’s time for a new national policy that addresses the needs of the fastest-growing population of students in the country.”
