Not sure what a podcast is? A podcast is like a radio show that you can download on a phone or computer and listen to whenever you like.

Current episode show notes:

Public education has been a major topic during the current legislative session, which is now just weeks away from concluding. The WASB has tracked more than 300 bills this session.

Reading instruction, school safety, licensure changes and student health have all been at the center of legislative proposals.

This episode, we check in with the WASB’s Government Relations Team to get an update on where we are as the session wraps up. We’ll also discuss some of the important themes that we’ve been following in Madison.

As always, follow the Legislative Update blog for the latest news.
