I believe all teachers should receive information on education policy and teacher advocacy. In the current system, teachers are far too removed from policy decisions that affect so much of what we do in our classrooms.
I conceptualize the boot camps to occur throughout the US, much like the EdCamp model. A cohort of individuals would put together the Boot Camp content--a living, digital work-- and provide virtual and in person workshops throughout the country this summer.
We need to amplify teacher voice in policy decisions--this is done by showing pre-service and current teachers the entry points to policy (which can seem abstract and impermeable) and providing them the toolkit to make a difference.
After all, teachers know best!
