President's Commission on Hispanic Ed. to Meet in May

President Obama has carried through on his promise to set up an advisory commission on Hispanic education. A notice in the Federal Register on Friday announces the commission will hold its first meeting on May 26 and 27.

The promise was written in an executive order on Hispanic education signed in October. The members of the commission, who aren't named in the press release I got from the White House today, will be sworn in by U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor the evening of May 26 at the Smithsonian Castle.
