Show Notes

This panel will discuss the state of Latinas in education, including the challenges and opportunities for engaging and supporting Chicanas/Latinas across the P-20 education continuum and beyond. Within the broader Chicano/Latinx student group, Latinas comprise a greater proportion pursuing undergraduate degrees in the United States. Yet, Latinas still face challenges throughout the public education continuum, particularly in postsecondary contexts. This intergenerational panel will present a broad perspective of how the Latinx community may thrive across P-20 pathways by offering a more nuanced understanding of select elements that contribute to success, resilience, determination and an unwavering commitment to the Latinx comunidad. Besides an overview of the state of Chicana/Latina progress in P-20 systems and beyond, panelists will cover the role of mentorship and programs in undergraduate success, the plight of first-generation Latinas in postsecondary contexts, and moving beyond full scholarship, mentorship and legacy building.

“Project Inspire - Proyecto Inspire Transformando Vidas” (bilingual Eng/Span format) - Season 7 (2016)

The California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE) 2-INSPIRE Program works with parents to increase their knowledge about schooling to ensure that parents have vital information about high quality educational options for their children (especially those traditionally underserved and/or attending Program Improvement schools). The Project 2-INSPIRE curriculum informs parents of their role in their children’s education, works with parents so they learn how to work with the information acquired and develops parent leadership skills to ensure their participation and collaboration as part of the school community.   All three levels of the program share the same objective and goal: To increase parental engagement in their child’s learning at home, school, and/or community; and thereby increase their child’s academic achievement. However, each of the levels differs markedly in their approach, strategies, methods, activities, and outcomes for parents and their children.   The panelists are parent leaders who currently serve as officers of the Binational Parent Leadership Institute (BPLI), and as “trainer of trainers” have each passed all three levels, from awareness to mastery to expert.   Proyecto INSPIRE es un proyecto que pertenece a CABE que trabaja con los padres para aumentar sus conocimientos acerca de la escolarización para asegurar que los padres tengan la información vital acerca de las opciones educativas de alta calidad para sus hijos.
