Do you feel like you don’t have a voice in education policy discussions? Find out how you can join in and share your opinions with policymakers. It’s easier than you think.
For too many teachers, education policy is something that “happens to them.” When we spoke with teachers across the country, they often reported that they don’t have an opportunity to shape the direction of education in their districts, states, and the country. However, as two Teaching Ambassador Fellows (TAFs) working with the U.S. Department of Education (ED), we have had the opportunity to see teachers both inform and influence policy. In fact, we would like to encourage other teachers to become part of the ongoing dialogue.
