The Graduates/Los Graduados explores pressing issues in education today through the eyes of six young Latino and Latina students from across the United States. More than a survey of contemporary policy debates, The Graduates offers first-hand perspectives on key challenges facing Latino high school students and their families, educators and community leaders. The Graduates/Los Graduados is not only a story about how Latino students are faring in our nation’s public education system, it is also a story about the graduates who will make up America’s future.


“The Graduates/Los Graduados” is a serious look at the issues pressing on Latino students. The first-hand perspectives allows political issues to be placed into context that most people can understand. Most of the time, it doesn’t matter that they are Latino. We’re seeing a microcosm of issues that need addressing. But, we only have two hours to tackle such serious issues. If anything, I would love to see an ongoing series examining such matters from all angles.

The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is pretty decent for a standard definition presentation. The Dolby track works for what it is. It’s what I’ve come to expect from a PBS DVD. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
