I would like to extend my appreciation for the leadership Senate President Gary Stevens and House Speaker Mike Chenault showed during the two day discussion on July 22 and 23 with the Advisory Task Force on Higher Education and Career Readiness. Collecting the data, listening to invested partners from the Alaska Departments of Education and Labor to the University of Alaska, private colleges and other educational organizations as well students was no small task. The members at the table kept the level of the discussion positive, solution based and student centered. The obstacles facing our children in their lifelong learning paths can be daunting, but Senator Gary Stevens and Speaker Chenault deserve credit for taking on the issues in a thoughtful, public manner.
