PTA Advocacy for Education - April 20

PTA Advocacy Day for Education

Invest a Day in Enhancing Your Understanding

April 20, 9am-2pm

Invest a Day in Enhancing your Understanding: Register to Attend PTA Advocacy Day for Education held on April 20th from 9am to 2pm at the San Ramon Community Center.

REGISTER TODAY!

 

Join parents, educators, elected officials, and community members for the 38th annual PTA Advocacy Day for Education hosted by the San Ramon Valley, Las Trampas Creek, and Pleasanton PTA Councils.

 

We will explore topics related to public school funding in California. The day will begin with a level-setting presentation about education funding in CA with Jeff Camp, the founder and primary writer for Ed100.org. This will be followed by a panel discussion that will add different perspectives to the continued conversation, including a PTA state budget advocate, an Assembly Education Committee staffer, and policy analyst from the California Budget & Policy Center. We will also participate in the CA Budget Challenge exercise which provides hands-on experience in the trade-offs addressed in creating a budget. After lunch, we will hear from our state legislators in a moderated panel followed by an opportunity to put what we've learned into action. For more information and registration, visit PTA Advocacy Day for Education 2018.
