What’s Happening in Washington: Anticipated Policy Shifts and What They Mean for You

Wednesday, August 2, 2017
6-7 p.m. ET

2017 has been a time of change and uncertainty for all federal policies, but especially for education. We know you're paying attention—this year, you and your fellow special educators sent thousands of letters to your members of Congress, helping ensuring that your voices are heard. Now, we're bringing you the updates that you need on what's still happening in Washington.

In this wide-ranging session, CEC’s Policy and Advocacy Director will analyze education policies currently under discussion in Washington, D.C., review the recent changes to education policy supported by the Administration and Congress and examine their impact on children and youth with disabilities and/or gifts and talents. Issues to be discussed include federal appropriations, private school vouchers, Medicaid and health care reform, recent supreme court decisions and others. Strategies and techniques for you to become involved in CEC’s advocacy campaigns will be shared.
