Education policy and legislation are certainly hot topics of conversation across the nation and although it may seem that these topics and issues are too complicated or un-related to the jobs we do each day, the fact remains: any policy and/or law passed at the local, state or national level has a direct correlation to your job, salary, benefits & more! There are many differing views on what, if any, changes should be made at all levels, and HSEF does not necessarily endorse, or agree with the views and information posted on these sites, however these sites are listed to help provide you with current information and resources.
