IAGC visited the education staff of IL representatives and senators in Washington, D.C., March 25, 2014
We represented Illinois at the NAGC Affiliate Conference prior to our Hill visits. Our advocacy promoted funding of the Javits Act and supported the Talent Act to confront the excellence gap, to support educator professional development in gifted, and to provide transparency of achievement data.
