(June 16, 2010) For many students, particularly students who are minority or economically disadvantaged, the dream of going to college is stymied by adults around them who deem them as not being “college material.” A group of high school students in
San Antonio challenged that perception among hundreds of low-income, minority students, many of whom were low achieving in school, Aurelio Montemayor, M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center along with
Hector Bojorquez , an IDRA education associate, interviews Youth Tekies Robert Adame, Bryan Alvarado, Joseph Cuellar and José Guevara about how they engaged with 600 of their peers to help them apply for college. Send comments to
