Over thirty delegates from the Wyoming Education Association will be joining thousands of other educators from around the country in Chicago for the 149th Annual National Education Association Representative Assembly.
Kathryn Valido is the President of the Wyoming Education Association, and she discusses one of the key issues that will be addressed at the Chicago gathering.
As head of the WEA, does Valido feel that Wyoming and its small delegation has any kind of voice at the Assembly?
Given that she feels Wyoming's voice is heard, Valido expresses how she observes other states' perceptions of education in Wyoming.
Valido describes a couple of distinctions between Wyoming education and other states.
The theme for the 2011 NEA-RA, which runs from June 30th to July 5th, is "NEA Standing Strong: for our Students, for our Schools, for America;" tomorrow we'll hear from Valido about another key issue for the delegates attending the RA in Chicago -- that of Priority Schools.
