Advisory council aims to lift voices of Latino education leaders

The nonprofit Latinos for Education recently launched a six-member advisory council “to lift up the voices and efforts of seasoned, Latino education leaders” as well as “influence conversations and actions around increasing educator diversity at the state and national level,” according to its website.

“We know that we are not alone in our efforts to increase the voice and representation of Latinos in the nation’s education system; that is why we are convening the National Latino Educator Advisory Council,” said Feliza I. Ortiz-Licon, Latinos for Education’s chief policy and advocacy officer.
