Author Robert Renteria Challenges Schools, Politicians to Revisit ‘Best Practices’

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

American youth lose their lives to violence each year. This statistic has led Chicago civic leader, Robert Renteria to invite politicians and the community to a conversation about K-12 Best Practices, his publicist announced this week.

Renteria is challenging politicians, educators, the public, and problem-solvers to help distribute tools which resolve some of the most pressing issues facing Chicago and the nation today.

The author says, “I donate school-based and faith-based curricula because I’m frustrated by schools and programs spending not just millions, but billions on classroom best practices that are clearly not working.”

The civic leader says Barrio curriculum is part of radical, affordable and actionable steps that can stop the trend of Chicago violence, crime, and murders. He is asking for assistance as he presents and donates curriculum backed by a strategic plan for distribution at the local, regional, and national levels.

“The bilingual books series ‘From the Barrio to the Board Room, Mi Barrio and Little Barrio’ and curricula can help change the landscape for our youth across America and around the world.

“I am calling people out because it is the right thing to do. I have sent letters, packages and e-mails that received no response, and made numerous phone calls that never were returned. I am challenging educational and political officials to do the job taxpayers paid them to do.” For additional information including partnership, visit the Barrio website at:, email, or call 312-933-5619.
