Event description

Description

During the Census of 2010, approximately 400,000 Latino children under the age of four were not counted, with 75,000 of those children residing in Texas. In addition to ensuring fair political representation, Census data are also utilized to determine the federal resources each state receives, impacting school funding formulas and programs such as Head Start and CHIP. This convening will provide an update of the current preparations for the 2020 Census and strategies that policymakers can adopt for a fair and accurate count in Texas to ensure a prosperous future.

This convening is part of our NALEO Texas Statewide Roundtables on Early Childhood Education and Care that will provide policymakers with the opportunity to learn the latest research and best practices to support the success of Texas families with young children.

Speaker: Mr. Arturo Vargas, Chief Executive Officer, NALEO Educational Fund
