Diplomas Count 2012: Trailing Behind, Moving Forward - Latino Students in U.S. Schools
Friday, June 8, 2012 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET
This year, the seventh edition of Education Week's annual Diplomas Count report places a special focus on the experiences of Latino students. Numbering nearly 12.1 million, this group comprises the nation's largest—and also fastest-growing—minority group, accounting for about one of every five public school students. Join us today for a live stream of the release of this critical report.
This release event is built around a combination of real substance, keen insights from American education's leaders, and genuine engagement with an audience of experts, stakeholders, and decision makers. In a set of moderated roundtable discussions, prominent policymakers, commentators, and analysts will grapple with the key issues that have defined and will continue to shape the national education debate.
