ARGOSY UNIVERSITY HOSTS SEMINAR TO EXPLAIN HOW VOTERS MONITOR EDUCATION FUNDS

SANTA ANA, Calif. – May 7, 2007 – Mona Field, a member of the Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees will be a guest presenter at Argosy University/Orange County’s next symposium. The event, which is scheduled from 4 -5:45 p.m., Wednesday, May 9, is open to university faculty and students.

Field has been a professor at Glendale Community College since 1982, where she has taught subjects such as “American Political Ideals,” “California Government” and “Introduction to Sociology.” She has also written extensively on social, educational and government issues, including authoring the college textbook, “California Government and Politics Today.”

Field’s presentation, titled “You as An Educator and the California Political Process,” gives students insight into how public education is funded and regulated by California voters, said Dr. Jeanette Elliott who is organizing the symposium.

“The symposium focuses on issues which are relevant to students in our College of Education and Human Development,” Elliott said. “These students include faculty, staff and administrators from K-12 school districts, community colleges and university districts. Staying on top of how public education is funded helps educators make informed decisions.”
