Anderjaska visits Capitol Hill to advocate for public schools PDF Print E-mail

Jon Anderjaska of the Wauneta-Palisade school board joined more than 200 state school board association leaders in Washington, D.C., to advocate for strong public schools for all students.
As president-elect of the Nebraska Association of School Boards, Anderjaska was in Washington to take part in the National School Board Association’s (NSBA) Advocacy Institute, held Feb 1-3.
The focus of the NSBA Advocacy Institute centers on building year-round advocates for public education and local school governance in public, legal and legislative arenas.
Resources and funding are significant concerns for local districts in addition to federal intrusion and overreach that impacts local school district policy and programs.
In a day-long visit to Capitol Hill, the five Nebraska school board state officers met with Sen. Deb Fischer, who served on the Valentine School Board and is a past-president of the Nebraska School Boards Association, as well as Sen. Ben Sasse and Congressmen Adrian Smith, Jeff Fortenberry and Brad Ashford. Speakers to the group included Gwen Ifill, Mary Madalin and James Carville.
