Schools that Teach Latino Youth to Love Themselves

In the 20th century, Latino contributions were erased from textbooks, media, and films. As we enter an era where educational paradigms are shifting, how does elevating erased cultures enhance what we learn as well as how we learn? Is it possible to learn in an environment where you have been erased, much less, learn to love yourself? How does on-screen representation contribute to this? Join LA Collab’s Ivette Rodriguez and Department of the Future’s Mark Gonzales to engage these very questions.
