Student Advisory Board on Legislation in Education
February 20 – 22, 2017
Delegates from the Student Advisory Board on Education in along with a number of new delegates meet in Sacramento in February as the Student Advisory Board on Legislation in Education (SABLE). They refine the ideas and proposals from SABE to present to the Assembly Committees on Education.
VIDEO PRESENTATION OF 2017 SABLE PARTICIPANTS
On February 22, 2017 SABLE members presented their education reform proposals to the Assembly Committee on Education in the senate chambers at the Capitol.
HOW THE CONFERENCE WORKS
At SABLE, students are divided into small groups, where they identify and discuss specific problems in the state’s education system. For three days students work long hours, expanding on these issues and brainstorming solutions. On the last day, each group incorporates the solutions they have developed into a proposal, and presents it to the California Senate Education Committee. In the past, results from SABLE have included altering statewide graduation requirements for High School students, and changes in curriculum. This is the only conference in the nation that allows students to directly voice their concerns to the Senate and Assembly Committees on Education, and the results have made a big impact in our schools.
At SABLE, students have the unique opportunity to follow up on proposals that were created during the Student Advisory Board on Education (SABE) conference in November. Though non-SABE delegates are also invited to attend SABLE, SABE delegates are highly encouraged to come to SABLE and present their refined proposals to the Assembly Committees on Education.
SABLE DATE AND LOCATION
SABLE will take place Dates: February 20-22, 2017 in Sacramento.
