The Hopkins Public Schools Legislative Action Coalition (known as LAC) is a grassroots advocacy group of parents, community members, school board members, and high school students. But it’s also more than that. Within the group is a legacy that includes and involves many of the legislators who are currently in office today. The Hopkins LAC is the birthplace and powerhouse for Minnesota legislators and a model for other districts. In this episode, our guests talk about the work they do behind-the-scenes to ensure that legislators understand the education priorities of Hopkins Schools and other districts in Minnesota and what bills they would like to see pass. We also discuss school funding and why school districts, including Hopkins, are needing to cut budgets after receiving increased funding from the state last year.

Guests:
Shannon Andreson - Hopkins School Board Chair
Catherine Callahan - LAC Liaison
Steve Adams - LAC member and former Hopkins School Board Chair
