The strength of America’s education system is undoubtedly connected to the academic success of Latinos. With the shift in demographics taking place in our nation’s schools, securing an adequate and equal education for all students, including Latinos, should be a priority not just for the federal government but for every person in this country.
The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics (Initiative) was originally established by President George H.W. Bush in 1990 to address the educational disparities faced by the Hispanic community. Since then, the call to address these within the Hispanic community has been recognized by Presidents William J. Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump through the renewal of the Initiative. This commitment demonstrates the strong support for the critical role Hispanics play in the overall prosperity of the nation and highlights the federal government’s commitment to expanding educational opportunities and improving educational outcomes for all students.
