Interview with Ronald Blackburn-Moreno on Aug 11, 2015, Segment 10, Part 1
CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-
Blackburn-Moreno discusses how educational struggles Puerto Ricans faced in the present have some differences and similarity to the past struggles. Dropout rates have improved but the percentage of Puerto Rican students dropping out of high school is still huge. Puerto Ricans still lack access to college and ability to cover the cost of college. Teachers in the public school system are often the least prepared and least experienced, the better teachers leave public schools.
