Cada uno debe ser capaz de pagar por la educación universitaria Featured

WASHINGTON, DC – En el mensaje de esta semana, mientras las escuelas se preparan para abrir sus puertas de nuevo en las próximas semanas, Maribel Duran la Jefa del Gabinete de la Iniciativa de la Casa Blanca para la Excelencia Educativa de los Hispanos habló directamente a los estudiantes y los padres sobre la importancia de la preparación para una educación universitaria.

En la economía actual, la educación superior sigue siendo el billete más seguro de la clase media, pero para muchas familias en el país, el pago de la educación superior es una lucha constante. Pero el Presidente y la Primera Dama se han tomado medidas para reformar los préstamos estudiantiles, ampliar las subvenciones y los créditos fiscales para las universidades, para ayudar a hacer los pagos de los préstamos sean más manejables, y han propuesto planes para asegurar que los colegios también hagan su parte para reducir los costos. Y justo esta semana, como parte del Año del Acción del Presidente, la administración anunció una nueva serie de compromisos para apoyar a los estudiantes que necesitan un poco de ayuda académica adicional para terminar la universidad.

Hola a todos. Durante las próximas dos semanas, las escuelas de todo el país abrirán sus puertas.

 

Así que hoy quiero subrayar la importancia de empezar a prepararse para la educación que vendrá luego de la escuela secundaria.

 

En la economía actual la educación superior es la vía más segura hacia la clase media. La tasa de desempleo de las personas que tienen una licenciatura es un tercio menos de la tasa de aquellos que carecen de un diploma de la escuela secundaria.

 

Afortunadamente, hemos hecho algunos avances significativos en la última década - la tasa de deserción escolar hispana se ha reducido en más de la mitad del veintiocho por ciento en el dos mil a menos del trece por ciento en el dos mil doce y todavía está mejorando.

 

Y el Presidente sigue tomando medidas para hacer que la universidad sea más accesible a todos, reformando el sistema de préstamos estudiantiles para que la mayor parte del dinero vaya a los estudiantes en vez de a los grandes bancos. La Administración ampliado las becas y los créditos fiscales universitarios para los estudiantes y las familias. Y también hemos ofrecido a millones de estudiantes una oportunidad de pagar sus préstamos estudiantiles con cuotas que no pueden superar el diez por ciento de sus ingresos.

 

El Presidente también ha propuesto un plan que vincula la asistencia federal al desempeño de las universidades y que crea un nuevo tablero de puntaje universitario para que los estudiantes y los padres puedan ver cuáles son las universidades que suponen una mejor inversión. El Presidente ha lanzado un nuevo desafío de setenta y cinco millones para inspirar a las universidades a reducir costos y aumentar las tasas de graduación. La comunidad hispana jugará un papel fundamental de la meta del Presidente de tener la fuerza laboral mejor educada y más competitiva en el mundo –  y usted puede ser parte de eso – para así ampliar oportunidades para los estudiantes desfavorecidos.

 

Me tomo esto como un desafío personal. Y a todos los jóvenes que me están escuchando, también se tienen que tomar su educación como un desafío personal. Por tanto, este año desafíense a llegar más alto. Y tengan la mira puesta en la universidad para dentro de unos años. Su país cuenta con ustedes.

 

Gracias a todos. Buena suerte este año.

WHITE HOUSE VIDEO MESSAGE: Everyone Should Be Able to Afford Higher Education

 

WASHINGTON, DC —In this week’s address, with schools getting ready to open their doors again over the next few weeks, Maribel Duran, the Chief of Staff for the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics talked directly to students and parents about the importance of preparing for an education beyond high school. In today’s economy, some higher education continues to be the surest ticket to the middle class, but for too many families across the country, paying for higher education is a constant struggle. But the President and First Lady have taken action to reform student loans, expand grants and college tax credits, help make loan payments more manageable, and have proposed plans to make sure colleges also do their part to bring down costs. And just this week, as part of the President’s Year of Action, the Administration announced a new series of commitments to support students who need a little extra academic help getting through college.

 

The audio of the address and video of the message will be available online HERE.

Spanish Weekly Address

The White House

August 16, 2014

                                                                                                                              

Hi, everybody.  Over the next couple weeks, schools all across the country will be opening their doors. 

 

And so today, I want to emphasize how important it is to begin preparing yourself for an education beyond high school.

 

In today’s economy, higher education is the surest ticket to the middle class. The unemployment rate for those with a bachelor’s degree is less than one-third of the rate for those without a high school diploma.

 

Thankfully, we have undoubtedly made some significant gains over the last decade – the Hispanic dropout rate has been cut by more than half from 28% in 2000 to less than 13% in 2012 and it keeps getting better.

 

And the President continues to take steps to make college more accessible to all, by reforming a student loan system so that more money goes to students instead of big banks.  He expanded grants and college tax credits for students and families.  He capped student loan payments at 10% of their income. 

 

The President has also proposed a plan to tie federal financial aid to a college’s performance, and create a new college scorecard so that students and parents can see which schools provide the biggest bang for your buck.  He launched a new $75 million challenge to inspire colleges to reduce costs and raise graduation rates, and increase opportunities for underserved students. The Hispanic community holds the keys to President’s goal of having the best educated and most competitive workforce in the world – and you can be part of that.

 

This is a challenge I take personally, and all you young people should take your education personally, too.  Challenge yourself to reach higher.  And set your sights on college in the years ahead.  Your country is counting on you.

 

Thanks everybody.  Good luck on the year ahead.
