Sharing local Education Team news is now possible within Florida and across the nation. We can all get inspiration from one another.
Throughout the summer, LWV Miami-Dade partnered with public libraries to host a series of educational forums on charter schools and on our statewide study on school choice. Four forums were held starting Sept. 24 through Oct. 7 at various library branches throughout the County. In October and in partnership with Miami-Dade County Public Schools, LWV Miami-Dade members presented at various high schools and colleges during the Higher Education Awareness Tour promoting the ideals of democracy and voter empowerment. The Miami-Dade League’s Election Ready Presentation toured the entire city, and was pivotal in teaching young students why they should vote, how to decode a ballot, and informed them on each amendment and what a yes or no vote means. The Miami-Dade LWV is committed to the cause of influencing the future by informing students and their parents of the issues that affect them the most.
