John B. King, senior advisor delegated duties of deputy secretary of education, will participate in a panel discussion examining federal education reform issues at the 18th annual League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) National Legislative Conference at 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 11 in Washington, D.C.

As part of the discussion, King will talk about the need to overhaul the Elementary and Secondary Education Act—also known as No Child Left Behind—with a law that not only ensures students are prepared for college, careers and life, but also delivers on the promise of equity and real opportunity for every child.

LULAC, founded in 1929, is the oldest Hispanic civil rights organization in the United States. Its mission is to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, housing, health and civil rights of the Hispanic population of the United States.
