Schools Face Similar Issues

MSBA President Becky Fles and Executive Director Steve Bailey joined leaders from other state associations to discuss key issues facing schools today. Briefings were given by members of the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, on model legislation its organization is promoting around school choice, vouchers and Education Savings Accounts. A second session, run by state association leaders, talked about what equity in education really means. Effective Board Governance was the focus of a third day-long session. The conference was put on by the National School Boards Association.
