Hear Student Perspectives on Reimagining Our Education System


Thank you for being part of our League of Education Voters (LEV) community!

In case you missed last week's statewide Virtual Event featuring an inspiring lineup of student leaders and 2023 Washington state Teacher of the Year Dana Miles, you can watch the video here.

Next week, the LEV Field Team wraps up their statewide group and individual interviews around our four main legislative platform issues: supporting student mental health, improving school climate and school climate data surveys, removing the special education enrollment funding cap, and ending isolation practices in schools.

The LEV Policy Team will then review the statewide interview content and draft our 2023 Legislative Platform, which we plan to announce next month. As we did last year, we will circle back with community members to ensure their voices were heard.
