The Importance of Lobbying for Education

At Dorn Policy Group, we specialize in many different issue areas including education, both K-12 and higher education. Our client K-12, Inc.,  offers many different educational tools for students, teachers, and administrators to help during this unprecedented time. If you are an educational institution, it is crucial to have a lobbyist to ensure your institution is funded and able to provide the right tools to students, teachers, and administrators. 

The Future of Remote Learning

Even before COVID-19, more and more schools began to implement an online program. Charter schools and higher education virtual programs have been growing in popularity as they allow students to have access to a classroom setting regardless of their geographical location. As a result of COVID-19, Arizona schools have incurred additional costs they were not prepared for. Remote learning will continue to grow; however, lobbyists can help to ensure funding remains available and steady flowing. 

Lobbying for Education

You may wonder, why would educational institutions need a lobbyist? Lobbying firms help schools attract and retain government funding. Funding for programs remain slim; therefore, it is important to have representation when legislators are voting on funding mechanisms. At the higher education level, schools face heavy competition to retain funding for various programs. By increasing your presence in front of the right government officials through an experienced lobbying firm is the first step in keeping your funding intact. 

At Dorn Policy Group, we have very extensive experience with education policy funding on the State and Federal levels. Now more than ever, it is crucial to partner with a lobbying firm to protect education funding from being cut. Due to the effects of COVID-19, it is important that students have access to educational resources. Contact Dorn Policy Group to learn more about how lobbying can protect your institution’s funding.
