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.

Hector is the editor and publisher of Enclave. A Chicago writer now floating on the edge of Las Vegas, he is also the former deputy editor for Latino Rebels, as well as the former managing editor for Gozamos, a Latino art-activism site based in his home town. 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 (for some reason) at the University of Illinois-Chicago, where his focus was on ethnic relations in the United States.
