Help for Latino College Students. The national leader of Hispanic-serving colleges comments on the HERE Act, a new bill spearheaded by Sen. Alex Padilla and Rep. Joaquin Castro to help Latino students go to college. The bill would address the gap in
college attendance and completion rates for Latino students and would partner with K-12 schools and colleges and would promote teaching as a profession. The original show aired on May 9.
