Oct. 1, 2018

This month, we sit down with state and national leaders of the Education Policy Fellowship Program. Fellows of this nine-month program concentrate on three major topics: public policy, leadership, and professional networking. Fellows remain in their full-time positions and use their environment as the context for examining important leadership and policy issues in Mississippi.

We talk to Devon Brenner and Kristen Dechert, the coordinators of the Mississippi chapter, about the history of the program in the state and its future. We also talk to Sarah McCann, a national EPFP coordinator, about opportunities available through the program. To learn more about the national group or Mississippi chapter, visit epfp.iel.org or rcu.msstate.edu/EPFP.

Additionally, Dana Seymour details the importance of technology in the classroom and bridging that gap for students in Mississippi in this month’s Research Minute.
