AACTE’s New Advocacy Campaign is Underway: Members Share Ways to Support Education and Educator Preparation
AACTE is amplifying the voices of its member advocates for education and educator preparation through the AACTE 75 Days | 75 Ways to Advocate for Education campaign, a celebration of AACTE’s role as a leader in advancing educator preparation for 75 years.
“It is extremely important that we place the needs of students at the center of all we do,” says AACTE Board of Directors Chair-Elect Monika Williams Shealy. “In order to do that, we need to support educators who are advocating on behalf of their students and themselves and we need to make sure that we are advocating for education preparation.”
The campaign launched with the first tips on December 12 offering a resources and advice demonstrating how to support educators and elevate education. Between December 12 and the AACTE 75th Annual Meeting kickoff on Feb. 24, 2023, AACTE will share new actionable tips daily from its members through its social media platforms and on the website.
Over the last week, members have provided ways to support education in a range of areas that have included national legislation, local lawmaking, local schools, intercultural proficiency, music and the arts, state-level associations, and the social and emotional wellbeing of teachers.
This week launched with a tip by AACTE Board Chair Michael Dantley. Watch the video.
