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.

Advocacy Address: “The Battle for Mexican American Studies (MAS) and the National Movement for Protecting Public Education” Season 5 (2014)  

Tucson continues to be ground zero in the national movement for preserving ethnic studies and protecting public education. Sean Arce, the former director of Arizona's Tucson Unified School District's outlawed Mexican American Studies (MAS) program will speak about the battle for MAS and the next phase of this struggle to save ethnic studies. Arce continues to carry on the legacy of MAS based on the concept of In Lak Ech - the Mayan philosophy of interpersonal responsibility. As a result, the [email protected] Institute for Teaching and Organizing (XITO) has been created with support from faculty at Arizona's renowned Prescott College. XITO is the evolution of the struggle to promote Mexican American Studies in school districts around the country. *Presentation made possible through a working partnership with the Ethnic Studies Student Organization (ESSO), the Sociology Club, the Center for Indigenous Peoples (CIPS), and the Native American Indigenous Student Association (NAISA), with funding provided by the CSUSB ASI Club Allocation Budget (CAB) and the University Diversity Committee (UDC).   Introduction: - Iveth Diaz, Chair, Ethnic Studies Student Organization, CSUSB   Moderator: -  Charli Eaton, Co-Chair, Ethnic Studies Student Organization, Member, CSUSB University Diversity Committee   Speaker: - Martin Sean Arce, Educator/Activist, Co-founder and former Director of the K-12 Mexican American Studies Department in Tucson, Arizona   This segment is date/time stamped: March 27, 2014; 9:50AM   Recommended Citation: CSUSB - Latino Education and Advocacy Days (LEAD), "Advocacy Address: “The Battle for Mexican American Studies (MAS) and the National Movement for Protecting Public Education”" (2014).

Panel: “Campaign to Promote Ethnic Studies: The El Rancho and Long Beach Models” Season 7 (2016)

This presentation has been made possible by the California-Mexico Studies Center, El Rancho Unified School District and LEAD, as co-conveners of the Campaign to Promote Ethnic Studies Summit on October 18, 2014, at CSU Long Beach.    The CPES Summit was webcast by LEAD throughout its worldwide network and prompted the Los Angeles and San Francisco school districts to adopt policies similar to the historic El Rancho USD’s resolution approved in June 2014, as the first Ethnic Studies graduation requirement by a local school board in California. Since the CPES Summit, 15-20 more local school boards have adopted comparable Ethnic Studies policies throughout California, including the Santa Ana, Montebello, Bassett and Woodland school districts.    This panel will present on the progress that has been made at El Rancho USD, to build upon their landmark resolution a comprehensive Ethnic Studies curriculum, and the also precedent-setting Long Beach Ethnic Studies Program (LB-ESP) that has created a model for school districts to offer ethnic studies H.S. and college-credit courses on Saturdays. The LB-ESP builds upon the nationally recognized Long Beach College Promise relationship between the LBUSD and CSULB, supported with a 5-year funding commitment by LBUSD, to offer high school students at least 12 college-credit Ethnic Studies courses every semester.   The panelists will discuss in detail how these initiatives came about, their benefit and replicability, and answer questions related to the Campaign to Promote Ethnic Studies’ goal to promote Ethnic Studies for all students in the K-12 curriculum, throughout California and the United States.        Introduction / Moderator: - Idali Lopez, San Bernardino High School Program Specialist and SBCUSD Ethnic Studies Committee Facilitator        Panelists: - Dr. Aurora Villon, School Board President, El Rancho Unified School District - Prof. Armando Vázquez-Ramos, President, California-Mexico Studies Center - Tino Gutierrez, El Rancho ...
