In honor of Latino Heritage Month, we dedicate an entire episode to understanding how charter public schools are working to transform the lives of Latino students in California.
In a special Change Makers segment, CCSA's Myrna Castrejón interviews Marcos Aguilar, one of the visionaries behind Anahuacalmecac International University Preparatory of North America in East Los Angeles. AIUPNA is perhaps the only charter public school in the U.S. to teach indigenous cultures, languages and native ways of knowing.
CharterNation host Ana Tintocalis is then joined by Erin Abshere, CCSA's Vice President of School Performance, Accountability, and Research who offers key takeaways from CCSA's new research brief Two Charter Public Schools, One Mission: Latino Academic Excellence.
This special episode then takes listeners to the Central Valley to find out how a career-tech charter high school is changing the way Latino students see their future.
