Community News POLL FINDS STRONG SUPPORT FOR HIGH SCHOOL REFORM AMONG LATINOS Washington, DC - A new poll by the Alliance for Excellent Education, a Washington-based policy, research, and advocacy organization that works to make every child a graduate, prepared for postsecondary education and success in life, found strong support among Latinos for greater investment in our nation's high schools. Janet Murguia, NCLR President and CEO, spoke today at a news briefing to release the Alliance's National Poll on High Schools, a comprehensive public opinion survey on high schools, held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. "The Alliance for Excellent Education poll confirms what we know about the Latino community: that education is its highest priority; that it recognizes that our highschools need a significant overhaul but its faith in the public school system is strong; and finally, that members of the community are more than willing to commit to improving education
