Policy Analysis Initiative
A network of NCTE volunteers track state policy developments impacting English language arts, English studies, literacy, and the humanities. These volunteers in each state provide analyzed information about state policies. With this knowledge, educators can better participate in the policymaking process that affects them, their students, their institutions, and their communities.
