Panel - “The Majority Report: Supporting the Educational Success of Latino Students in California” Season 8 (2017)

This panel discusses the new report by The Education Trust – West, The Majority Report: Supporting the Educational Success of Latino Students in California, a comprehensive look at the status of California’s Latino students. The report presents a range of extant state wide data from multiple sources, and also incorporates original research and stories from primary first-hand sources, such as interviews with current and former students. The Majority Report investigates Latino students’ experiences, from issues affecting early education gaps, through the causes of lower college attainment rates, and the barriers faced as they prepare for, enter, and complete postsecondary education. In addition to identifying problems, the report highlights solutions: practices and policies that have been effective for Latino students, parents, and educators. The report was released late Spring 2017.

"The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture of the Riverside Art Museum"

LEAD Exclusive - Behind-the-Scenes Extra exclusive content, like behind-the-scenes footage, be it back-stage, behind the curtain, or out of view of the general public.     "The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture of the Riverside Art Museum" Season 12 (2021)         An exclusive behind-the-scenes tour by LEAD planners and CSUSB delegates of the forthcoming Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture of the Riverside Art Museum. Located in the Inland Empire, city of Riverside-California, The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture, nicknamed “The Cheech,” is a public-private partnership between the Riverside Art Museum, the City of Riverside, and comedian Cheech Marin.   Cheech Marin, LEAD XI Padrino de Honor, is one of the world’s foremost collectors and advocates of Chicano art. In the mid-1980s, he began developing what is now arguably the finest private collection of Chicano art. In addition to artwork loans to numerous institutions, this notable collection has been featured in over a dozen exhibitions produced and shown at more than 50 museums in the U.S. and Europe to date, including the Smithsonian, LACMA, and the de Young Museum in San Francisco. Comprised of mostly paintings, followed by drawings, prints, and mixed-media artworks, then sculptures and photography, his collection (which currently numbers approximately 700 pieces) will serve as the core of The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture of the Riverside Art Museum. A long-term goal of The Cheech is to supplement and expand the collection with Chicano artists, media, and subject matter not currently included through acquisitions and donations from artists and their estates, art collectors and dealers, and institutions.   The concept for the new space and guiding principles of the design by nationally recognized architect and ...

Capstone Presentation - "Civic Courage and Social Action in the American Democratic Process: Toward a New Latino Citizenry"" Season 10 (2019)

Capstone Presentation - "Civic Courage and Social Action in the American Democratic Process: Toward a New Latino Citizenry"" Season 10 (2019)

Over the past decades, Latinos have emerged as the largest minority in the nation, with majority populations in many states and regions, and in some cases, the majority demographic among school-age children. In many ways, this is our moment as a major cultural influence on art, music, food, and so forth. Our workers, too, are the backbone of many sectors of the intertwining local, regional, state, national and global economies. Yet, the strength of our schools and communities, basically, “our place in the world”, is impossible to evaluate without focusing on the educational outcomes of Latino students.    Latinos continue to have some of the highest drop-out/push-out rates, score among the lowest on achievement tests, and have low college enrollment and graduation rates. Both Latino students and teachers have a high mobility rate, are located in racially segregated communities with high poverty rates, and attend schools with fewer resources, staffing, and programs. Education is of economic imperative, and the Civil Rights issue of our generation; it’s a right not a privilege. For the U.S. to create a positive future it will require a Latino citizenry that more greatly participates in the American democratic process, and that is poised to shape the U.S. political landscape through voting and civic engagement.    By 2020, 32 million Latinos, for the first time, will be eligible to vote, the largest racial or ethnic group eligible to vote in a presidential election (13.3 percent of the electorate). Immigration is playing a role, albeit a small one. One-in-10 eligible voters will be foreign-born in 2020, the highest share since 1970. But the share eligible to vote does not necessarily transfer to voter turnout. ...
