Viewing of a documentary followed by discussion with writer and executive producer, Enrique Aleman, Jr.

The Institute of Texan Cultures will offer an encore presentation of the documentary "Stolen Education," chronicling the systematic discrimination against Mexican-Americans in Texas school systems in the 1950s.
Stolen Education explores the history of school segregation in Discroll, Texas in the 1950’s, where Mexican-American students were forced to take the first grade three times – at a beginning level, at low level, and a high level. The students were relegated to do this solely on the basis of their race, rather than academic performance. Because of this discrimination, the Mexican-American students who graduated from high school were years older than their fellow Anglo classmates.
The film was produced by Enrique Alemán, assistant vice president for student equity & diversity and an associate professor of educational leadership & policy at the University of Utah. It debuted at UTSA in September 2013.
