Wednesday, August 1, 4:30-5:00, SUB Room 233, Theme: Leadership

A common question for practitioners and researchers is understanding how they can engage with or influence the policy-making process at the local, state, or national levels. Additionally, states have seen a large amount of movement in state-level of leadership positions during the past election cycles, and are expected to see even more during the upcoming elections; this will undoubtedly affect education policies. During this session, presenters will discuss how novices to the policy-making process can engage with policymakers and the policy-making process. Attendees will also learn about the education policy landscape in the country, including governance turnover in positions like such as governors, legislators, state board of education members, and so on. Finally, presenters will provide some examples of how states are addressing education issues specific to rural issues through state-level policies.
