Educator Day on the Hill

The main message UEA wanted us to share with legislators is to fully fund growth and increase the WPU by 3%.  The State Office is recommending 2%, and the governor is recommending 1.5%.  Ginny, Dena, and I were able to talk to the majority of representatives for the Jordan District area.  Most of the representatives listened respectfully, so it was a good experience. 

If you haven't been to the legislature as a citizen lobbyist for education, I encourage you to attend.  See this post for future dates and send me your information if you would like to go.
