Advocacy

In education today, technology isn’t an option, it’s an essential. One that can be complex and costly to implement and maintain.  ALET’s advocacy helps others better understand the rewards, risks, and requirements associated with technology programs. This advocacy extends to the Alabama state legislature, where lawmakers seek to shape and fund successful educational opportunities for Alabama’s youth.
