Ray Aguilera is a student recruiter at Pueblo Community College, a former Pueblo City Council member and a candidate for county commissioner.
This includes you, Ray.
This includes you, Ray.
I would also like to point out, that as great as your article was Ray, about 75% of Pueblo's parents will not have read it and will never get the point that they are responsible for their children's successes and failures!! They do watch the TV news though, maybe someone could report on it because the Chieftain is simply not doing enough to reach the parents! Teachers are NOT miracle workers, we need the help of parents to ensure educational success!

First, as Mr. Aguilera says, all the kids would come to school.
But the other 95% won't read Mr. Aguilera's editorial, and won't read a Chieftain news story about education, and sure as hell won't read this.
Perhaps you have answered your own question Mr. Aguilera.
Ray discussed many valid points, but toward the end of his editorial he hit on the most important ... parent involvement and the return of discipline to the schools.
It is strange that when Ray was on Council he voiced no concerns as these now stated. His record is Millions of dollars for Minnequa lake park, $6 million for renovation of City Hall, $300,000 to help pruchase a black Rhino (a tropical animal), $743,000 for the PMI motorsports crowd and on on and so forth speaks for itself.
I am also disappointed that Aguilera is the first person to question the district in the Chieftian...two weeks after the Denver Post.
Ray, it's your Party who keeps on wanting stupid stuff being taught. Like mandatory classes on gay and lesbians. Kids don't need to know that stuff and while they are learning that, they aren't learning how to add.
Simple isn't it? I honestly believe that if you went through the phone book and picked 500 people at random and told them to teach, they could do a better job than what we have now. Too much politics in schools, PERA is not interested in children, they are interested in feathering their own nest as much as possible, aided and abetted by people like you Ray.

District 2 City Councilman Ray Aguilera, who often brings up the city's poverty rate during council discussions, said he was surprised that the numbers were as high as they were.
"From the people I deal with every day, I've always thought that the area's median income was between $25,000 and $30,000," Aguilera said.
Aguilera represents Bessemer and Minnequa Heights, two of the city's largest working class neighborhoods.
They also are part of the so-called Y zone, areas that historically comprise Pueblo's poorest neighborhoods which includes the city's East Side, West Side and Hyde Park.
Aguilera works as a student recruitment specialist at Pueblo Community College and said he sees poverty every day.
"Forty percent of the students who come here are here absolutely free because their income level qualifies them and 72 percent of the kids who come here receive some kind of financial aid," he said.
Aguilera said the recent announcement that Vestas, a company that manufactures large, electric-generating windmills, will build a plant to manufacture its towers in Pueblo is a good start.
PCC will help train some of the Vestas workers and Aguilera said ongoing education and training for the entire work force is also important.
"I think some people have no idea how everyday people get by.It's a really tough period right now," he said.

He asked the young people to realize that "everyone of us carries a cross" and no one is alone in having problems.He also assured the parents at the breakfast he organized that he, and the other speakers, were there to help their kids.

Former Pueblo City Council member and longtime civic activist Ray Aguilera, at least wants to take it to the top.
Aguilera renewed his pitch to the Pueblo Board of Water Works Tuesday to put water in the lake, which is the centerpiece for a city park that has been under development for a decade. He made the same request last year.
"Having been a public official, I know how long it takes for a project to come to fruition," Aguilera said.
Ray Aguilera, the Hispanic ..., 11 Nov 2011 [cached]
Ray Aguilera, the Hispanic president of the Pueblo City Council, is concerned that if the proposal is adopted, it will backfire for Hispanic voters who will unlikely be able to elect a representative in the Republican-leaning 4th CD. He says Hispanic voters will have a louder voice by maintaining the current boundaries in the 3rd CD. Aguilera argues that the Latino interveners represent only a small minority of Hispanic voters, and is encouraging them to drop their proposal.
"They certainly aren't the majority, they're a very small minority," said Aguilera, who says he has been discussing the issue with Latino voters in Pueblo who agree that the maps proposed by the Latino interveners do not represent their desires. "I think it's risky for them to want to do this because there's no precedent for us to have aligned ourselves with those communities in that area."
Aguilera calls the maps introduced by Latino interest groups a "10-year experiment" being pushed by a small group of young female Hispanic voters.
"They haven't had any discussions with the people here, they're doing this all on their own," said Aguilera.
Aguilera says Hispanic voters who typically align with Democrats have a better chance in the 3rd CD, compared to the 4th CD, which has typically been held by a Republican.
But Aguilera says Pueblo Hispanics have little in common with Greeley and the Eastern Plains, arguing that Hispanics are treated differently in Pueblo than in Greeley.
