U.S. Department of Education Senior Official to Visit the Los Angeles Area for Youth Listening Tour

Posted Oct 06 2010 8:34pm

Contact: Jo Ann Webb, (202) 401-1576, press@ed.gov


Event Date 1 : October 07, 2010 - October 08, 2010

Alberto Retana, U.S. Department of Education’s director of community outreach, will visit the Los Angeles area Thursday-Friday, Oct. 7-8, to host a National Youth Listening Session on college access and completion. During his youth listening sessions and roundtables, Retana will engage students, educators and community partners in a discussion on how school, family and community can help them establish and promote a culture where college graduation is the norm rather than the exception. The Department’s Teaching Ambassador Fellows Antero Garcia and Linda Yaron will join Retana on the Youth Listening Tour.

The Los Angeles area visit is part of a National Youth Listening Tour that is engaging students and using their feedback to inform federal policies on turnaround strategies for low-performing schools, enhance family engagement to support student achievement, improve graduation rates, and promote efforts to meet the President’s national goal of once again leading the world in college completion by 2020.
