SDEA is hosting “Lobby Week” March 1–4, 2021 to give educators the opportunity to speak up for the schools our students deserve. The pandemic prohibits us from bringing you to the Capitol, so this year we are going to ask you to join us from where you live and teach.
Here are the activities we have planned:
March 1st | Monday
