Influence & Advocacy Committee visits Capitol Hill
Members of the MassCUE Influence and Advocacy Committee traveled to Capitol Hill this month to meet with national leaders on federal ed tech policy and funding. Committee members Colleen Terrill, Jenn Judkins, Natalie Croteau, Heidi MacGregor and Karen Winsper attended the Ed Tech Advocacy Fly-in in Washington, DC to participate in discussions about student data privacy, the E-Rate program and the homework gap. During the visit, they participated in several roundtable discussions with representatives from the U.S. Department of Education about equity; innovation and emerging technologies; and Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona’s priorities.
The Ed Tech Advocacy Fly-in event was sponsored by ISTE, CoSN, SETDA and SIAA.
