- The highlight of yesterday... Dr. David Garcia! ASA met with Dr. Garcia to discuss how we make higher education more affordable and accessible for all. We discussed education policy that is being drafted for 2018-2020.
- We also discussed Dr. Garcia’s plan to make community colleges in Arizona free! A plan we at ASA, believe can work.
- ASA has worked with Dr. Garcia in different capacities over the years as he is a nationally recognized expert in education research & policy, an ASU professor and now a candidate for Governor of Arizona.
- We’re looking forward to working with Dr. Garcia in the coming weeks. Stay tuned, amazing things are around the corner.
