The What's and Why's of Act 20

VIRTUAL - Thursday, October 19, 2023 from noon-3:30pm


Join us as we take a deep dive into what Wisconsin's new "Right to Read" law means for the students, teachers, and administrators in Wisconsin's public and private choice schools. Dr. Jackie Weissenburger, one of the advisors to the legislature for Act 20, will facilitate this half-day workshop. Attendees will have time to gather factual information, collaborate with colleagues from across the state, and ask questions about the law's implementation.
