Episode 12 – Passport to the Future

in Politics/Remember the Show! by

Hector chats with Eric Cortes, a high-school social-studies teacher in New York City, about the current state of the education system, specifically school funding, for-profit colleges, charter schools, and the need to train future citizens through the teaching of civics — plus a few random topics, of course.

A Chicago writer now floating on the edge of Las Vegas, Hector is the editor and publisher of Enclave, as well as a guest columnist for Chile’s Prensa Irreverente. He is the former deputy editor for Latino Rebels, as well as the former managing editor for Gozamos, a Latino "artivist" site based in his hometown. He has contributed to RedEye, a Chicago daily geared toward millennials, and La Respuesta, a New York-based site for the Puerto Rican Diaspora, plus a number of publications, including the Huffington Post. He studied history at the University of Illinois-Chicago, where his focus was on ethnic relations in the United States.
