Podcast Series: Policy Matters
Along with their Government and Professional Relations (GPR) Committee, NASP has developed the Policy Matters podcast series. This podcast series features interviews with NASP and state association advocacy leaders that help school psychologists understand the current education policy landscape and incorporate advocacy into their daily practice.
Drs Angela Mann, Byron McClure, and Antoinette Miranda share their advocacy journey and the importance of school psychologists being engaged at all levels of policymaking to promote equity in opportunity and access.
Dr. Julia Szarko, the 2021 School Psychologist of the Year, shares her personal passion for advocacy and provides good advice for individuals looking to impact policy in their communities.
In this first episode, Kari Oyen, cochair of the NASP GPR Committee, and Kelly Vaillancourt Strobach, NASP Director Policy and Advocacy, discuss the NASP Policy Platform and what NASP hopes to see from the Biden Administration.
