Secretary DeVos Releases Statement on the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative Executive Order

July 9, 2020

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos issued the following statement on the White House Executive Order establishing the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative:

"Hispanic families, like so many families across America, want their children educated in personalized ways that meet their unique needs and their family’s values. We know that a great education is also the launching pad to a great job and long-term prosperity. I applaud President Trump’s strong leadership in support of more educational opportunities and greater prosperity for all Hispanic Americans. At the U.S. Department of Education, we’re working to open up new career pathways including apprenticeships and earn-and-learn opportunities, expanding support for Hispanic Serving Institutions, prioritizing new public charter schools in Opportunity Zones, and fighting for education freedom so Hispanic students—and all students—can find their right fit."
