MEDIA ADVISORY--Bishop to Hold Annual Education Conference at Utah State Capitol
"I look forward to this event each year and, this year, I'm pleased to welcome students from Union High School who will be participating for the first time. The Education Conference is one of the few opportunities I have throughout the year where I get to step back into a teaching role—a job I enjoyed for nearly three decades. While text books do a good job of covering the basics of government, my goal with the education conference is to expand upon students' foundational knowledge by giving them a greater and more in-depth understanding of how government and elections work. Students and teachers from different schools have the opportunity to interact with one another and it is my experience that these types of collaborative learning events are a great addition to the traditional day in a classroom," said Bishop.
