Obama to Issue Executive Order on Hispanic Higher Ed

October 19, 2010
 

President Obama is expected to issue an executive order Tuesday aimed at strengthening federal efforts to improve the educational attainment of Hispanic Americans. The revised document, which will come on the heels of a summit held Monday by the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, is expected to establish a presidential commission that will work with community leaders to gather advice on Hispanic education, and an "interagency working group" to help coordinate the federal government's efforts on a wide range of issues important to Hispanic Americans, including housing, health, finance, employment and education.
