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.
