Classnotes Podcast (April 29, 2011) There has never been a time in the history of education in this country in which equal opportunity has been a reality. It has never been the case that most minority students graduated from quality high schools or from any type of high school. In her keynote at the national conference by the U.S. Office for Civil Rights, IDRA President, Dr. María “Cuca” Robledo Montecel, states that we cannot meet the nation’s goals of educating American youngsters to compete in a global economy without closing the racial-ethnic gaps in high school graduation and college completion rates. She describes IDRA’s Quality Schools Action Framework that shows how we can transform schools into places of excellence and equity. She also provides examples of schools and communities that have done just that.
