I am at the Legislature this morning with Vicki Winn (OEA Exec Bd) and Lisa Vipperman (OEA VP) for the UEA "Educator on the Hill". Vicki and Lisa, along with educators from Davis, Washington County, Salt Lake and Cache County are receiving a briefing from UEA staff and President Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh in preparation for lobbying their legislators today. They will contacting their local legislators with talking points about funding, offensive bills (see Grading Schools) and other issues. Educator on the Hill is a program for teachers to come up to the hill on Fridays and lobby their legislators.
