This week we bring you a special edition of “This Week in California Education,” recorded at the One Voice Assembly sponsored by the California Association of Latino Superintendents and Administrators (CALSA) in Sacramento on April 20. The event focused on how to promote greater college access and completion among California’s Latino students, who make up about 3.4 million of the state’s 6.2 million public school students.
EdSource Executive Director Louis Freedberg is joined by CALSA’s Executive Director David Verdugo and Oxnard School District Superintendent César Morales — to discuss the importance of creating a college-going culture among Latino students and families, beginning at an early age. Louis also speaks with Jessica Garcia-Kohn, vice-president for partnerships and sustainability at LRNG, about bridging the gap between what employers need and what students are learning in school.
Thanks for listening!
