Cal State University San Marcos is set to present “The Face of the American Educator: Addressing the Latino Male Shortage” from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Mar. 9 at Mt. San Jacinto College, Menifee campus.
The symposium stems from a College Board of Advocacy & Policy Center issued study called “The Educational Crisis Facing Young Men of Color,” in Jan. 2010.
As shown in their research, Latino men have low high school graduation rates and low college enrollment due to the lack of successful Latino role models in the education system.
California State University San Marcos and Encuentros Leadership have partnered to present an Educational Leadership Symposium designed to address this issue.
This symposium aims to connect local educational leaders, students, and community leaders, clarify the issues and identify strategies to increase the number of Latino males who choose to become educator.
The agenda includes breakfast, keynote speaker Dr. Al Mijares, Orange County Superintendent of Education and roundtable workshops with prominent educational community leaders.
Mt. San Jacinto College, Menifee Campus is located at 28237 La Piedra Road in Menifee.
