There are not enough teachers at the table during discussions about education practice and policy, especially in the area of school funding priorities. Many teachers desire opportunities and structures to contribute to conversations and decisions that impact their work. Our office creates events to not only hear the teacher voice, but share it with those that need to hear it.
