Education Department Participates in IACTE Day

February 21, 2018

The Grand View Education Department visited the Capitol on February 15 as part of the sixth annual IACTE (Iowa Association of Colleges for Teacher Education) Day at the Iowa State Capitol. Physical presence at the Capitol during legislative session is an avenue to increase visibility and ensure voices are heard. This was an opportunity for the department to share information about their personal experiences in one of Iowa's teacher education programs with their state legislators and network with other students and IACTE collegues.

This event continues to be an excellent opportunity to witness democracy and advocacy in action as they observe such  activities as the Iowa Senate debate funding for K-12 schools.

Both professionals and future professionals let their voices be heard on important issues that will impact the education field in our state.
