Department of Education establishes a new bilingual Web site to help Hispanic parents make college a reality for their children


A recent study released by the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute indicates that Hispanic children are more likely to miss out on the crucial educational steps leading to college.

The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans has taken the first step to address this issue and equip Hispanic families with the tools they need to help make a college education a reality for their children.

www.YesICan.gov and >www.YoSiPuedo.gov provide information on the Myths and Facts about College Costs, 20 Questions to Ask Your Guidance Counselor, and Things You Need to Know About Paying for College. The initiative worked with collegeboard.com and Tormont Publishing to provide content.

In addition, the new mascot, Pablo the Eagle, will host www.YesICanKids.gov and encourage reading and educational advancement among the Hispanic community's youngsters.
