Presentado por Samuel A. Paredes.
The focus of this session is to help parents and students understand the rigorous process that students go through in order to become eligible for college. If parents are made aware of this long process at the early stages of their children’s lives, they can become prepared to counsel their children later on when they need to take college preparatory courses in high school to be eligible for college. In addition, part of the focus for this session is to discuss performance standards and standardized testing of students.
