Elevating Latino Parents in Education

Data shows that students perform better when their caregivers participate in their education, but Latino parents are often excluded from school decision-making processes. Now, Latino families are challenging the status quo in Houston, where Latino students represent 62% of the population, by presenting a unified vision for the change they want to see. This session will highlight advocacy work underway and how other school systems can create more welcoming environments for Latino families.
