Leadership Los Alamos focuses on education

-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

The 2010 class of Leadership Los Alamos held its Education Session on Nov. 12. The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos hosted the session. The Leadership Los Alamos program is nine months in duration and program sessions are designed to address current issues facing the community.
The education session focused on how education is in a constant state of evolution. Speakers addressed local, statewide and national issues, as well as how community involvement can drive educational opportunity.
Speakers included New Mexico Representative Rick Miera, who addressed the challenges of maintaining high educational standards in these times of budget shortfalls. Los Alamos School Superintendent Dr. Gene Schmidt and Piñon Elementary Principal Jill Gonzales addressed issues from a local perspective.
The advantages and challenges of modern technology in the classroom and in the lives of students were the subjects of two presentations, one by Dr. Jonathan Brinkerhoff and Dr. Cheryl Torrez of the UNM College of Education and another by LAHS Math Teacher John Pawlak and UNM-LA Psychology Instructor Dr. Carol Furchner.
