Committee Meets July 21 and 23, 2019, in Chicago

The committee met on July 21 and 23 in Chicago as part of the 2019 Midwestern Legislative Conference Annual Meeting. The agenda can be found below. Committee members passed two resolutions at their meeting in Chicago (later approved by the full MLC) — one urging the federal government to meet its full funding commitment under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and a second calling for better oversight and funding of U.S. Bureau of Indian Education schools. See below for links to the resolutions.
In addition to the committee's sessions, the MLC meeting in Chicago featured other opportunities to explore education policy, including a session on state strategies to improve civic education and a site visit to the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences.
