The 2022 ASCD Legislative Agenda: A Foundation for the Future

2 years ago


In this Webinar

ASCD's Legislative Agenda identifies the association’s policy priorities for the year to support educators and benefit students. The 2022 Legislative Agenda serves as the foundation of our advocacy activities and engagement with Educator Advocates. In this interactive webinar, Legislative Committee members will review this year's recommendations, discuss their relevance to educators, connect them with current local district and school conditions, and answer questions from participants.
