2DAC (Two Days at the Capitol)
March 7 and April 25, 2017 | Capital City Club, Columbia, SC
As leading voices for public schools, the visibility of local school board members advocating for the students, teachers and parents in their district is so important. SCSBA’s lobbying days brings local school board members and other public education advocates from across the state to the State House for face-to-face meetings with House and Senate lawmakers to advocate for a variety of key education issues including funding reform, flexibility and local control.
