Founded in 2001, the Hispanic Council for Reform and Educational Options (Hispanic CREO) addresses the crisis in Hispanic education by providing Hispanic parents with free information and resources to guide them in becoming advocates for their children. Hispanic CREO has been able to educate, inform and mobilize parents on the issues surrounding school choice. By creating coalitions PAN, CHISPA, PUEDO, REACH and YO CREO! with parents, schools, advocates, faith-based organizations and many other concurrent groups, Hispanic CREO can make revolutionary changes to the education system to enhance Hispanic children’s futures.
Hispanic CREO is the only national public policy Hispanic organization dedicated solely to K-12 education reform to advocate for parents and children. The most recent research and studies available today along with the 2010 U.S. Census solidifies the crisis that exists in Hispanic student achievement. Currently, Hispanics are the most undereducated minority group in the United States.
