'LEAD' stands for 'Latino Education and Advocacy Days,' but this year's LEAD summit included more than Latinos. Last week's event at Cal State San Bernardino drew hundreds of observers and participants from all kinds of diverse communities from the Inland Empire and elsewhere around Southern California.
KVCR's Natalya Estrada attended the conference and has this recap.
For most students attending Catholic school, it's not enough to know your ABC's and long division. Delila Vasquez, President of the Catholic Elementary Schools of San Bernardino, says students learn that plus values, faith, and other lessons they continue to use throughout their entire lives. Vasquez is one of the speakers at the Latino Education and Advocacy Days --LEAD -- Summit at Cal State San Bernardino tomorrow [Wednesday].
If you feel like college has been getting harder to get into these past few years, then you're not alone. Some UCs and CSUs have limited the amount of California students they accept. That will be one of the topics of discussion at the annual Latino Education and Advocacy Days Summit next Wednesday at Cal State San Bernardino. KVCR's Natalya Estrada talks with LEAD Summit panel speaker Dr. Daniel Estrada about access to higher education in the Inland Empire.
San Bernardino isn't usually a place associated with strong education values, especially for its minority population. Cal State San Bernardino Professor Enrique Murillo, Jr. wants to change that misconception through the Latino Education and Advocacy Days Summit. KVCR's Natalya Estrada spoke with Dr. Murillo about his plans and solutions for this year's LEAD Summit next week at CSUSB.
