Arizona Education: Hispanic Education
Oct. 16, 2014
There are more Hispanic students in Arizona public schools than non-Hispanic Caucasian students. Hispanics score over 20 points lower on the AIMS test than non-Hispanic White students. Dr. Kent Scribner, superintendent of the Phoenix Union High School District and a member of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics, and Dr. Delia Saenz, an Arizona State University Associate Professor of Psychology and Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at Arizona State University, will discuss the problems with Hispanic education in Arizona.
