NPR Reporter Claudio Sanchez to Speak at UW College of Education Graduation
Claudio Sanchez, the education correspondent for National Public Radio, will provide the keynote speech at the UW College of Education's Graduation Celebration on June 11, 2011. The public is invited to attend this event, which will be held on the UW Quad, near Miller Hall.
A former elementary and middle school teacher Claudio Sanchez' radio spots focus on the "three p's" of education reform: politics, policy and pedagogy. Sanchez's reports air regularly on NPR's award-winning newsmagazines Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Weekend Edition.
Sanchez joined NPR in 1989, after serving for a year as executive producer for the El Paso, Texas, based Latin American News Service, a daily national radio news service covering Latin America and the U.S. - Mexico border. From 1984 to 1988, Sanchez was news and public affairs director at KXCR-FM in El Paso. During this time, he contributed reports and features to NPR's news programs.
At the University of Washington College of Education, we are focused on digging deeper to find better answers to the world's most pressing questions. Educational equity and education reform are two sides of the same coin; therefore affecting all levels of education, specifically here at the University of Washington. These hot topics are changing the face of what our public education system looks like. With education reform evolving daily, the UW community will benefit from a lecture from Claudio Sanchez, a reporter on the front lines of education issues.
