Making the Connection: A Guide to Involving Policymakers in a Community Dialogue on Education.
Mutchler, Sue, Ed.
This booklet is designed for anyone who is interested in bringing state policymakers and their constituents together to dialogue and deliberate about public education. It contains information about what community dialogue is, why state policymakers should be included in dialogue with members of the communities they represent, and how to successfully invite and encourage state policymakers to participate in a community dialogue on education. The booklet is useful if you are looking for a way to help people connect with their policymakers on an important education issue in their community, if you are organizing a community dialogue on education and you want to know how to successfully include state policymakers, and if you are considering how to make your next dialogue program even more satisfying. While this booklet does not contain specific information about how to organize or facilitate community dialogue programs, it does provide details about where to find these resources. (DFR)
