At the Capitol
It's a fact of life that every decision that affects education is a political decision. Our elected lawmakers at the State Capitol determine everything from what teachers teach to how schools are funded. That's why the KNEA has lobbyists who are there when you can't be, monitoring the issues and the bills and making sure your voice is heard.
The KNEA Lobby Team consists of elected leaders and staff. We welcome member feedback on issues before the Legislature and on this site. To provide feedback or to volunteer to participate in KNEA legislative program, click on the links below:
