The Saturday School Where Mexican American Children Learn About their Heritage: A Q & A with NEPC Fellow Angela Valenzuela
So happy and honored to get featured in the newsletter by the National Education Policy Center. Very timely as yesterday was our first day back. Thanks to Dr. Kevin Welner and Holly Yettick for featuring Academia Cuauhtli.
NEPC Fellow Angela Valenzuela discusses Academia Cuauhtli, a Saturday school where fourth graders learn about indigenous Mexican and Mexican American culture, history, language and experiences, all through a social justice lens.
