The IEA continuously works to improve the educational system for students and working conditions for educators throughout the state by advocating the needs and desires of members to elected officials that affect education policy.
The Legislative Platform provides guidance on how to address education policy and those issues facing our students and educators, including school funding, collective bargaining, educational opportunities, employee rights and more. The Platform was written and developed by members of the IEA to provide direction for the Association on issues important to educators. Each year members have an opportunity to review and make changes to the Platform at the IEA Representative Assembly.
Members are encouraged to submit suggestions and feedback about the Platform that will be considered by the IEA Board. You can review the Legislative Platform and submit suggestions on the outreach form provided below.
