Call Number: DVD LB1570 .S256 1994
Publication Date: 1994
Dora Ybarra, of the President's Peace Commission, serves as the moderator for this panel discussion featuring Dr. Albert Cortez, the Director of the Intercultural Development Research Association; Al Kauffman, J.D., Mexican-American Legal Defense Fund (MALDEF); and Brother Peter Pontollilo, the Superintendent of Schools for the Archdiocese of San Antonio, Diocese of Victoria. Mr. Kauffman explains that the title of the presentation, "A good education for my child, whether yours gets one or not," summarizes the way of thinking for most of Texans throughout the past years; he provides examples to support this statement. Dr. Cortez then speaks about the choice of education -- private schools and public schools. Brother Pontollilo then speaks about the parental choice education system, which he believes is on the horizon and he believes will bring about competition. A question and answer session concludes this panel discussion. (72 minutes)
