President Obama Joins Univision for Townhall on Hispanic Education

President Obama has said that our nation’s economic future is being decided every day in classrooms across the country. With 25 percent of children under 10 being Latino today, the Latino community plays a critical role in our nation’s ability to out educate and out compete the world and win the future.

Tonight, President Obama will join Jorge Ramos and Univision and their Es El Momento campaign for a townhall “Noticias Univision Presenta: Es El Momento – El Presidente, Los Hispanos y la Educacion” speaking directly the Hispanic Community about the state of education. The townhall will air at 7pm ET/PT and 6pm CT.
