Youth Speak on Barriers to College: National Youth Listening Tour [Video] – Generation Justice

On September16, 2010, the U.S. Department of Education held a listening session entitled the National Youth Listening Tour at Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque,NM. Members of the community — including middle school, high school and college students — came out to share ideals in part to encourage education reform. KUNM Youth Radio Project’s Lucia Martinez and Aurea Cardiel interview three youth who attended the event, Ricardo Astorga, Colin Willis, and Julissa Hunte. The three of them explain what barriers they see that keep students from getting into college.
