Education is an issue that affects us all, regardless whether we are parents, students, employers, or teachers. Most of the time, when we think of Education, we think of our local public P-12 schools, or perhaps a local university. While that’s certainly accurate, it’s actually our elected officials in Jefferson City who can often make decisions about education that affect schools across the state. This can include education policy, teacher certification requirements, school safety measures, and even curriculum. We are providing names and contact information for the 2021 Missouri Legislative Education Committees, both for the State House of Representatives and State Senate:
