+Legislation and Advocacy
PACIE executive leadership, board, and members are our best advocates and actively promote the mission and goals of PACIE and the value of global ready graduates.
PACIE has rededicated itself to advocacy as it pertains to global education from kindergarten to graduate school in the Commonwealth. It has striven through a variety of pursuits to broaden a conversation that was at one point conducted by primarily by international education into one that happens within each household in Pennsylvania. PACIE began these pursuits by engaging with the former Secretary of Education, Carolyn Dumaresq. Through Secretary Dumaresq, we were introduced to an education consultant with whom we work to network in Harrisburg with a wide variety of officials from the Department of Education as well as Capitol Hill.
As of September 2016, members of PACIE have met with more than twenty State Senators and House of Representatives, have worked to regain the naming of the Governor School for Global and International Education, and preserve an excellent relationship with the Secretary and Deputy Secretary of Education. Through these relationships, new legislation is currently underway which would reengage the state in a conversation on what global learning can and should look like for today’s students. PACIE hopes and will continue to advocate for the completion and implementation of this legislation. It further hopes to be a guiding force in the ensuing conversation that would frame Pennsylvania’s expectations for global education within its schools and universities.
