2DAC (Two Days at the Capitol) March 18 and May 13, 2015
2DAC is two days during the legislative session for board members, superintendents and other public school advocates to spend time at the State House meeting with legislators to discuss public school issues, attend legislative committee meetings, increase the visibility and voice of local school boards.
Join SCSBA for our weekly Voices for Education podcast. Communications Coordinator Baker Maultsby talks with educators, policymakers, and others whose work affects public schools and the students they serve.
This podcast features an interview with Greg Tolbert, executive director of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Upstate, along with comments from two of the students the organization serves. Tolbert shares his perspectives on what makes the Boys and Girls Clubs so effective and on the need for quality after-school opportunities for disadvantaged children in the state.
