The Square Pizza podcast focuses on the intersection of education, innovation, and diversity. We host and interview leaders doing incredible work around the country to ensure all students have access to an equitable education. The Square Pizza podcast is hosted by SchermCo, a social-impact implementation firm that offers strategic implementation and project management services to schools and education-focused organizations across the country.
We are excited to bring you this episode of the #squarepizzapod. This week, Greg is in conversation with Dr. Daniel Velasco, Chief Operating Officer at Latinos for Education. Latinos for Education’s mission is to develop, place and connect essential Latino leaders in the education sector.
Topics covered in this episode:
- How Latinos for Education came to be
- Why disaggregation needed across all levels to understand disparity
- How charter and district schools can work together or learn from each other
- What social, organizational, and political challenges stand in the way of more equitable representation between Latinx students and educational leaders
We hope you enjoy!
