White House Official Holds 'Community Conversations' About Hispanic Education

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan isn't the only high-level staffer in the Obama administration who is taking listening tours.

Juan Sepulveda, the director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, recently traveled to Kansas City to learn about ways the administration can improve schooling for Hispanics, according to the Kansas City Star. The stop in Missouri was part of an 18-state tour. (Hat tip to HispanicTips.com.)

The White House is officially calling Sepulveda's multicity tour a "series of community conversations."
