To meet that end, the Texas Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (TALAS) was created as a statewide association for the identification, recruitment, development, and advancement of Latino school administrators in order to improve public education in general for all students, with an emphasis on improving the educational and career opportunities of Latino youth. Despite the fast-rising numbers of Latinos in our society and schools, there are few Latino top administrators in education.
