Puna Learning Center
A Puna Learning Center | State Senator Russell Ruderman asks the Legislature to fund a higher education distance learning center in Puna.
A center would provide “greater access to secondary education” in Puna, which Ruderman says is the “fast-growing” and yet “poorest district in the state.”
“The Puna District is the size of Oahu, and yet there’s not one single classroom of higher education,” Ruderman said Wednesday. “I don’t think that situation exists anywhere else in the state.”
