State of the Union and Hispanics Twitter Chat Recap

Last night, we held our first Twitter Chat following the President’s State of the Union (SOTU) Address.  This year more than ever, we were able to watch the address across different platforms, and engage in activities before, during and after. We wanted to hear from you. What did the State of the Union say about education? What does that mean for the Hispanic community? What are other education-related issues important and relevant to you? We were thrilled with the questions and comments we received during our one hour session.

Folks from Arizona raised questions about college completion and wanted to learn more about how the Obama administration is supporting postsecondary completion for Hispanics.  Others applauded and appreciated the significance of Latino students, including one ELL student, who joined the First Lady during the SOTU.  We were too.
