Latest issue of the IDRA Newsletter – This month’s focus: Restoring Justice

“This problem of blaming the students – because their soul, their mind, their heart, or their community environment is deemed unhealthy – is perhaps the main reason we fall short of keeping the promise to educate all children. Today, it is time to dream together a better future, and the core of our dream must value young people – all young people.” – Dr. María “Cuca” Robledo Montecel, IDRA President and CEO
