ASCD's 2021 Legislative Agenda identifies the association’s policy vision and includes recommendations to support educators, improve our schools, and benefit students. The Legislative Agenda serves as the foundation of our advocacy activities and engagement with Educator Advocates. Fellow educators who serve on the legislative committee will review this year's priorities, their relevance to educators, and how they support schools and students.
