EduPAC Speaker to Address State University Funding


Tom Kramer, executive director of Virginia21, will be coming to speak to MLWGS’ Education Policy Advocacy Club (EduPAC) on Tuesday, Dec. 18 after school in the forum. Students, teachers, and parents are all invited to come!

Virginia21 is a public interest group, fueled by student advocacy, that has helped to win hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for Virginia’s Public colleges and universities over the past decade. Rising education costs will affect all MLWGS students; over 60% of the Class of 2012 was bound for one of Virginia’s Public universitie. Like MLWGS, these institutions are currently under tremendous budgetary pressure. Kramer will describe how Virginia21 advocates for education and will impart lessons as to what MLWGS students can do to become education policy advocates.
