White House Google Hangout

December 16, 2015 @ 2:00 pm-3:00 pm

A Conversation on Early Learning with Bright Spots in Hispanic Education
via Google+ Hangout on Wednesday, December 16, 2015 at 2:00 pm EST.

As part of the 25th Anniversary Year of Action, the Initiative made a national call for Bright Spots in Hispanic Education and announced over 230 during Hispanic Heritage Month. To elevate the work, including promising practices, of these Bright Spots and learn from their experiences, the Initiative is hosting a series of public engagements, via Google + Hangout over the coming year.

These interactive sessions will provide an opportunity to hear from programs, models, organizations, or initiatives that are helping close the achievement gap, from cradle-to-career, for Hispanic students, and for discussing ways to continue moving the needle on progress for Latino students and families.

The next in the series of monthly Hangouts, will take place on Wednesday, December 16, 2015 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. eastern standard time and will focus on Early Learning and the Latino community. Future Google +Hangouts are planned as follows:

• Post-secondary completion – January 20, 2016
• Family Engagement (Spanish) – February 17, 2016
• Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education – March 16, 2016
• Latino teacher recruitment – April 20, 2016

The Hangouts will be broadcast live from Washington, D.C. and viewers can participate via the Web stream, or by sending questions in during or in advance of the event through Google+, Twitter, Facebook or email.
