Statement by U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. on Hispanic Heritage Month

EDITOR’S NOTE: See Spanish version below.

Nothing quite captures what it means to be an American more than the belief that hard work and perseverance will lead to a better quality of life. The Hispanic community shares these aspirations with every other community across the country, and our diverse experiences in pursuit of these shared values have long been woven into the fabric of American history. Today, we begin the annual observance of Hispanic Heritage Month and honor the contributions that Hispanics have made and continue to make to the United States.
