The Iowa Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (IACTE) held its annual Day at the Iowa Capitol on February 9.

The Day at the Iowa Capitol allows students and faculties from the 32 preparation programs in Iowa  the opportunity to speak to legislators regarding issues in education.

The students and faculties  prepared talking points around issues like school funding, Iowa Tuition Grants, program requirements, and Board of Educational Examiners’ fees.

This event continues to be an excellent opportunity to witness democracy and advocacy in action as they observe such  activities as the Iowa Senate debate funding for K-12 schools.

Both professionals and future professionals let their voices be heard on important issues that will impact the education field in our state.
