PEP Talk Podcast Featuring NAFIS' Leslie Finnan

Earlier this year, AASA launched Public Education Policy (PEP) Talk, a podcast to highlight anything and everything that could be edu-policy related and interesting, tied into AASA's education policy and advocacy work.

You can check out all our episodes to date here, and today we want to highlight the latest episode, featuring a guest with a name near and dear to AASA: Leslie Finnan, stopping by in her new role as the head of advocacy and policy at the National Association of Federally Impacted Schools (NAFIS). We loved getting the chance to catch up with our former teammate and always public ed advocate.
