Rosemary Papa Interview — Podcast February 8, 2016


The State of Education in Arizona: Ground Zero Is Not the Goal. Democratic Perspective talks to Dr. Rosemary Papa about the woeful state of public education funding in the state of Arizona. Dr. Papa currently serves as The Del and Jewel Lewis Endowed Chair in Learning Centered Leadership and Professor of Education Leadership in the College of Education at Northern Arizona University — a position she had held since 2007. As Dr. Papa explains, public education, publicly funded, was once considered the cornerstone of our democracy. Why the State Legislature of Arizona and the Superintendent of Public Instruction have rejected that view, and what are our children, and our future, are likely to suffer as a result.

    Thank you for the podcast with Dr. Rosemary Papa. She is an expert on information about education, policy and politics. Her talk at the League of Women Voters was excellent. Each month the League is having a Critical AZ Election Issues Program — the March Program will be about Prisons — March 21, 9:00-10:30 at Yavapai College in Sedona and 12-1:30 at Yavapai College in Clarkdale. It’s open to the public – no charge. Join us – spread the word. This is a very important election year and the League is dedicated to voter registration and education. Please be involved and engaged.
