-A A +A
By Katy Korkos

Challenges in education –  from the local to the global  – were the topic of Friday’s class for Leadership Los Alamos. The Leadership program, now in its fifth year locally, aims to engage local citizens and prepare them for all types of public involvement. There are 28 students in this year’s program, from many different sectors of the community.Eight speakers and several group activities were the highlights of the “Education” session at UNM-LA, which was sponsored by Los Alamos County and Los Alamos National Bank.“School Board Mysteries” were revealed by Steve Girrens, who led off the session by detailing the role and responsibilities of a school board member. Girrens described board duties and responsibilities, praised the quality of Los Alamos Public Schools (LAPS) students, teachers and administration, and reminded listeners that the primary reason for serving on the school board was “for the kids.”More of the local perspective was provided by Georgina Williams, prevention specialist for the Los Alamos Public Schools, who cited alarming statistics from the Search Institute’s 2003 survey of 200,000 U.S.
