“This program helps to build a bridge between the education community and state lawmakers. Shadowing a teacher for a day gives Arizona’s legislators a better understanding of what is happening at public schools in their legislative district. We are hopeful these visits result in beneficial, sustainable partnerships,” said Arizona Educational Foundation Executive Director Bobbie O’Boyle.
The Arizona Educational Foundation works closely with the Arizona K12 Center and the Arizona Education Association to facilitate the partnerships.
Teachers and legislators are matched based on legislative district. The shadowing and time spent between teachers and legislators is unique to each pair.
