Senator Ellen Corbett Heads Roundtable Discussion: Prop 30 vs. 38—the Future of Higher Education - Press Release, Office of College Advancement
Fremont, CA—Senate Majority Leader Senator Ellen Corbett will head a roundtable discussion of two competing education propositions on the November ballot, Propositions 30 and 38. The discussion will center on the impacts that these propositions will likely have on publicly funded education, with a special focus on community colleges. Senator Corbett brings the unique perspective of the workings of Sacramento, how Propositions affect the state budget, and how changes in the budget will affect public education in the future.
Senator Corbett will be joined at the table by Ohlone College President Dr. Gari Browning, and representatives from college faculty, Trustees, students, staff and administration.
After initial presentations from Senator Corbett and several of the panelists, there will be a question and answer session, guided by a moderator, and an opportunity for brief responses from the audience.
The event is open to the public and community members are encouraged to attend. It will also be webcast on the Ohlone website at www.ohlonetv.com. The event will be rebroadcast on the Ohlone Television Channel 28 on Comcast cable until the election, and will be available for viewing on the website. Information on how to watch the archived copy of the webcast will be available on the home page. For more information please visit www.ohlone.edu/go/roundtable.
