Parents, educators, business and community leaders, as well as legislators and local government executives, make up The Franklin Foundation’s State Advocacy Councils. Council members collaborate on our nation’s most pressing education issues and share their voice with legislators and policymakers. Advocacy Councils provide local context to this national crisis and empower people from all walks of life to have a stake in the conversation. The foundation’s mission to educate the public on the importance of community-based, free, and low-stress public education is what drives our commitment to enable dialogue and changing the narrative on the state of and importance of public education.
Each state council works to improve public education support and create community focus around the importance of the public schools in their area. State Council members are ambassadors and advocates for public education. They are community members taking action to have a positive impact on their community’s future.
