State Legislature Elections
State legislators are responsible for creating and shaping education policies that affect public schools within their states. These policies can include funding for schools, curriculum standards, teacher certification requirements, and other issues related to education.
State legislators also play a critical role in determining how much money is allocated to education from the state budget, which can have a direct impact on the resources available to schools and the quality of education that students receive. They also have the power to make laws and regulations that directly affect the education of students and teachers.
School Board Elections
Local school boards and community college trustee boards have a tremendous influence on the quality of education in your community. They determine education policy, funding distribution, professional salaries and benefits, and working conditions. Critical decisions are made at the local level and it is incumbent on the men and women who work in public education to advocate for candidates who support strong public schools.
