Education Committee

We study issues,  lobby legislators and school boards and take action to seek positive changes for our students.  Our research on funding, testing and the overall strength of Orange County's schools is invaluable as we also assist the county's educational leaders.

The committee has the advantage of having both seasoned and new members. The majority of our membership is alumni of OCPS. All members are advocates for a quality, fully funded public education for all students.
