Dear Media Literacy Advocates, Friends and Supporters,
Now is the time for us to take action! Washington State Superintendent Chris Reykdal is asking for your opinion about new priorities for school funding. This is an opportunity to influence funding for years to come!
Superintendent Reykdal wants to hear from us — teachers, students, parents and interested taxpayers.
- The online survey asks you to rank budget priorities that OSPI should put forward to the Legislature for 2019.
- Media literacy is not listed on the survey; you can use the write-in section.
- The more times we can get media literacy mentioned in this survey, the better chance we have to ensure the funding of media literacy education.
To take the survey, please visit the State of Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction website below:
The survey is open now through Friday, June 8.
It is available in nine languages in addition to English: Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Somali, Traditional Chinese, Khmer, Korean, Punjabi, and Tagalog. It takes just five minutes to complete and is completely anonymous.
Let’s make sure Superintendent Reykdal knows that media literacy education must be included in his list of priorities!
