Youth, Technology and College Access – Podcast Episode 70 | Classnotes Podcast 70
Classnotes Podcast (April 12, 2010) Despite a number of initiatives, Hispanic and other minority low-income students are still far underrepresented among college students. And while most efforts focus on high-achieving high school students, IDRA has been tending to students who others had written-off as not college ready, whose assets are not being valued and consequently who do not enroll in higher education. Hector Bojorquez, an IDRA education associate, shares an inspiring story of a group of high school students took leadership in helping their peers access to college information through community technology centers in San Antonio . Hector is interviewed by Aurelio Montemayor , M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center.
