  • Four Puerto Rican Bilingual Pioneers
    Honored by Education Group


    Four Puerto Rican pioneers in the field of bilingual education in New York were honored and remembered by their peers at this year’s annual conference of the New York State Association for Bilingual Education (NYSABE). The trailblazers, all of whom passed away in the last two years are: Dr. Aurea E. Rodríguez, Anthony S. Amato, Luis A. Cartagena and Prof. José Vázquez-Faria

    Luis O. Reyes, Centro’s director of education, noted that these four deceased educators represent the leadership role that Puerto Ricans have played in the history of bilingual education in the state and in the nation. Reyes emphasized that their contributions spanned New York’s public schools and college classrooms and included bilingual curriculum development as far as Puerto Rico and Chicago in the case of Aurea Rodríguez and school district administration as far away as Hartford, Conn., New Orleans, La. and Stockton, Calif. in the case of Tony Amato.

  • Centro's New Educational Tool
    Highlights Puerto Rican Heritage

    Centro’s new Puerto Rican Heritage Poster Series is a collection of five large posters that provide a brief historical chronology of Puerto Ricans in the United States and three posters that are historical and demographic maps that pictorially reflect Puerto Rican migration. As part of Centro’s Traveling Exhibits program, the posters are available to educational and not-for-profit organizations. The posters are also available for sale to the general public.

    This rich heritage series is designed to provide an attractive visual educational tool for teachers and others to use in classrooms or other public spaces, and to introduce students to and interest them in this significant piece of Puerto Rican and American history.
