At the end of the spring semester, Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) hosted the 2013 Student Conference, which featured 60 students from five different Maricopa community colleges.
According to Heather Ortiz, the event coordinator, the total number of student participants increased significantly from last year. “The student conference gives the students a chance to learn how to do effective research using multiple methods,” said Ortiz.
The attendees sat tightly assembled, listening intently as the current issues in education in regards to culture and competition were addressed at Phoenix College’s Bulpitt Auditorium in February. Everyone present was focused on the speaker, Arnold Kling, as he stood ready to tackle the topic of education having turned into a business.
