2021 MLC Education Committee Meeting



The MLC Education Committee met in July 2021 in conjunction with the 75th Annual Meeting of the Midwestern Legislative Conference in Rapid City, S.D.

Along with holding a legislative roundtable discussion on trends in education policy, this nonpartisan, binational committee of legislators learned about new funding opportunities under the American Rescue Plan Act, explored post-pandemic challenges and opportunities for state K-12 education systems, and helped lead an expert-led session on state strategies to bolster  vocational education. More information on those sessions can be found below.
