Webinars to Update Members on Proposed Federal Regulations, Advocacy Roles
The U.S. Department of Education has stated that the final regulations for teacher preparation programs will be released this fall. Please join me for an update at a free webinar at 11:00 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, August 12, or 4:30 p.m. EDT on Thursday, August 13. These webinars are for AACTE members only and are free of charge.
During the webinars, I will update you on the interplay of the proposed regulations with the recent work of Congress to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as well as the pending work to reauthorize the Higher Education Act.
Most important, I will be discussing the role that you can play as members of Congress are home for the August recess. This is a perfect time for you and your colleagues to make your voice heard on the proposed regulations. There is much to be done!
Congress still has time to act on these regulations, but it will take the constituent voices of institutional leadership, faculty, staff, students, and your PK-12 partners to create the necessity to act.
