Effective advocacy is more than being passionate about gifted education. An effective advocate knows how to convey the message that needs to be heard and knows how to frame information in a manner that drives the point without alienating those who influence the decision-making process.
To that end, TAGT has compiled a variety of resources to help you become a successful advocate for gifted education. We also encourage you to sign up for our free legislative emails, which will be sent beginning Spring 2019.
