Title: Legislative Update: 2017 Recap & What's Ahead for 2018
Presenter: Lynn Edmunds, Program & Outreach Director (Public Schools First NC)
Offered: Thursday Afternoon Group Session
Target Audience: All Grade Levels

Description: North Carolina, once a leader in education in the south, has seen numerous attacks on funding, teachers, and students in recent years. 2017 was no exception. We'll update you on what the legislature did to public schools during the 2017 Long Session and what to watch as the Short Session begins in May 2018. Empowered by our overview of state public education laws and initiatives, you will leave our workshop a stronger advocate for public schools!

She has worked in public education advocacy for 9 years, first as a volunteer and then with Public Schools First NC beginning in 2013. Lynn has served on multiple PTA and civic boards, including her current at-large position on the Wake County Board of Library Commissioners.
