graduates-01-thumb-large[1][1]-1The Graduates explores pressing issues in education today through the eyes of six Latino and Latina students from across the United States. More than a survey of contemporary policy debates, the bilingual, two-part film offers first-hand perspectives on key challenges facing Latino high school students and their families, educators, and community leaders. It is the story of the graduates who will make up America’s future. The two hour, bilingual screening will be followed by a community discussion led by Emma Salazar, Student Development Advisor, Program for Academic Advancement, Fort Lewis College.
