Centro Hispano stands on the side of quality education for all children in the city of Reading.


As reported in the Reading Eagle on September 24, 2015 the Reading School Board has started the process to revoke the charter for I-LEAD Charter School.  The board voted 6-3 to approve a notice of charges that initiates the revocation process.  I-Lead has responded to these charges. 

The issues that the leadership of I-Lead and the Reading School District have are between those two organizations and must be addressed.  There is a process that is in place to resolve these types of issues and the process must be respected and followed in order to resolve these important issues.

It is for this reason that the Centro Hispano has taken a position of neutrality in regards to the revocation process.  The Centro Hispano leadership wants what is in the best interest of the children of the city of Reading.  We stand with all children who have the right to a quality education.

The Centro Hispano Daniel Torres Inc., whose mission is to support and enhance the acculturation of the Latino population in the Greater Reading area through collaborative initiatives designed to enable individuals to improve their quality of life and the quality of life in their communities support high quality education for all children in the city of Reading.

It is our hope that leadership at both the I-Lead Charter School and the Reading School District respect our position on this important issue.  We will not be drawn into this process and we will not take sides.   We will remain neutral on this issue and as always, stand with the children in the city of Reading who deserve a quality education.
