This Week’s Captions: Report Card

THIS WEEKS SHOW:
As the school year winds down, we hand out some grades on our report card show. From the failure of schools to maintain integration, to the effort shown to allow undocumented students in-state tuition. Then, we look at the price paid by one Texas school for trying to graduate former dropouts. First-generation college students graduate. We grade the media for trying to deal with stats correctly. And we hear how TV’s done this year in terms of diverse programs. Finally, producer Daisy Rosario tells Bill Cosby about what he’s done to change her mother’s life.

THIS WEEK’S SHOW:
First week of April, first ever fiction edition at Latino USA! We dream big this week with a story about our motherland, Latinia.

We dream immigration reform passed, and celebrate April as “White History” month by reporting on the exotic non-Hispanic white peoples of the USA. On a more serious note, we discuss the #CancelColbert controversy and the limits of satire. Plus, an illustrated poem walks us through the feeling of the ‘male gaze’.
