Let's Talk K-12 Chicano Studies

Let's Talk New Mexico 6/14 8a: Research shows when students learn about their own culture and history in school, it can keep them engaged, boost self-esteem, and improve academic performance.

Did you take classes like these? What did that mean for your educational experience? Are public schools in New Mexico doing enough to offer those types of classes? We’d like to hear from you! Email LetsTalk@KUNM.org , tweet #LetsTalkNM or call in live during the show.
