Be Informed! Be in the Know about Education Policies!

So much is happening in education at the moment! We have people debating about Common Core State Standards, assessment, teacher evaluation, and many more issues. It's important to stay informed so you are well informed about changes and equipped to advocate for yourself if necessary.

Be Informed! Be in the Know about Education Policies!
Wendy Asks:These resources are great for staying informed about education policies. Do you know of any resources or groups that can help you get more involved in the policy process?

I'm not personally involved in policy but I have a friend in Minnesota who's very involved in education policy at a local level. As far as I understand, he first got involved by participating in activities organized by the state teachers' union. The strength and activity of teachers' unions vary from state to state but it could be a good place to start. I'd love to hear ideas from others too!
