Federal Relations Network conference attendees learned about the current issues in Congressfunding, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act reauthorization, and the future vision for K-12 education at Monday morning’s sessions.
Monday’s sessions were designed to give attendees a full picture of Washington’s political scene related to education before they visit Capitol Hill. Later today Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will discuss the Obama administration’s budget proposal and the ESEA reauthorization.
NSBA Associate Director Michael A. Resnick told the audience to expect that many members of Congress will say they’re in difficult positions.
“If they think their job is hard, they ought to come to a school board meeting,” he quipped.
