Wednesday on Lake Effect: Supporting Latino Students, Women in Sports, and Author Kwame Alexander

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

What specific educational needs does the Latino population have, and how can a school address them? Enrique Figuero, director of the Roberto Hernandez Center at UW-Milwaukee gives us his answers. Later, even as the number of women in sports reaches record highs, women sportscasters face some ugly criticism. Still, writer Kwame Alexander sees beauty and poetry in sports, especially the ending of this year’s NCAA men’s basketball championship. He discusses his latest novel, Booked.
