Recommended Candidates

We all need to be held accountable in order for our schools and students to succeed, especially those holding the purse strings of the state budget. That’s why the ISEA developed a comprehensive program to help make public education issues and important part of the campaigns of candidates at all levels. We hold politicians accountable for the decisions they make concerning public education.

Our political action arm is called the ISEA PAC and it is made up of association members who are appointed at the local level. ISEA PAC uses an extensive interview and recommendation process to identify candidates who truly support educators and public education. Here are the questions we ask.

 

ISEA PAC

It’s a fact of life that every decision that affects education is a political decision. That’s why the ISEA has developed a comprehensive program to help make public education issues an important part of the campaigns of candidates at all levels. Through our political action arm, ISEA-PAC, association members interview candidates about their views on education-related issues, issue recommendations on which candidates are most supportive of public education, and work to help get pro-education candidates elected.

Your voluntary contribution to our political action arm, ISEA-PAC, gives us the strength and political influence we need to make a difference for students and public education in Iowa. It helps us elect candidates who have their priorities straight and who are willing to back up their talk with positive action.What’s more, ISEA-PAC contributions help us help Iowans get beyond the campaign rhetoric and better understand what’s really at stake.

Here’s how ISEA-PAC works: We use an extensive interview and recommendation process to identify candidates who truly support educators and public education. Then, we disseminate that information to help our members — and the public — make informed decisions on election day.
