CHICAGO—Obama for America released a new set of Spanish language television and radio advertisements titled “El Candado” and “Pedir Prestado,” exposing the effects that Romney’s education plan would have on Latino students across the United States .

Under a Romney presidency, up to two million Hispanic students could see their Pell grants cut by almost a thousand dollars, thousands more would lose their federal work-study programs, and his plan to repeal student loan reform would result in less funds community colleges that serve over 6.6 million Hispanic students nationwide. What’s Romney’s solution for students who are concerned about paying for college or getting ahead?  He’s told them to “shop around” or “borrow money” from their parents.

President Obama, on the other hand, has made education a national priority, working to ensure America is on track to out-educate the rest of the world and that our workers are prepared to compete in the global economy. The President reformed the student loan program and doubled Pell Grant funding helping 150,000 more Hispanic students over the next decade better afford college while making it easier for borrowers to pay back their student loans.

“El Candado” will air in television stations in Colorado, Florida, Nevada, Ohio, Virginia.
