Governors Play a Key Role in Education

capitol buildingFor over a decade, I have received press releases from my Governor by email.  The press releases cover a wide variety of topics, from administration appointments, honors, calendar of events and jobs created.  Governors discuss why they choose to support or veto legislation, advocate for their budgets and positions, express sympathy for those who have died and comment on current events.

Given the prominent role of Governors in education policy, it is good practice to either sign up for their email newsletters and/or press releases or to follow them through Twitter or Facebook. Click Contact Info for Governors to get a full list of the governors for all 50 states and their contact information.
