Everyone should be able to live in a community that has a school they are proud of, and everyone deserves to know that their voices are being heard by our public officials, both local and state. But, for almost the past two years, public education has been the target of ideological attacks, and too many people feel that their voices and concerns about this are not being heard. Education funding is constantly at stake for additional cutting (as if $860K was not enough) and because of this, programs proven to be successful for student achievement are being eliminated.
On Saturday, September 22nd, EVPA is hosting a day-long Statewide Advocate Leadership Session. This session is a chance to provide advocates with an understanding of the education issues we are facing today and the tools needed to engage others. The session will also provide an opportunity to starting planning for next year in a collaborative and coordinated way. As a state, we ALL benefit when ALL children have an opportunity to learn.
Registration is $25 and includes breakfast, lunch and all training materials. Don’t wait…space is limited.

Help us spread the word. The more people we engage, the stronger our voices will be.
