“Daily Grito,” a Blog on Hispanic Education

It’s less than two days old, so it’s difficult to tell yet what a new blog by the Hispanic CREO advocacy group is all about, but I like the title, “Daily Grito.” In Spanish, the word “grito” means cry or call to action, and the blog is the organization’s “daily call to action on the Latino education crisis,” according to the blog’s first entry.

I wrote about the Hispanic Council for Reform and Educational Options, or Hispanic CREO, and its mission to press for school choice for Hispanics when the organization was first launched in October 2003. Education Week also reported several years ago on how the organization was using a federal grant to reach out to Hispanic families with information about the No Child Left Behind Act.

While cyberspace has a lot of education blogs, I haven’t seen one focusing on Latino education, so I’ll keep an eye on this one.
