MCEA works to create a better understanding and support for the needs of urban school districts within state and federal government. MCEA staff monitor legislation and programs to provide information on the latest developments affecting member districts. MCEA also develops solutions to address current issues, coordinating with other stakeholders to generate support for policies to better serve the needs of urban students. Middle Cities has been especially active in school restructuring, finance and education reform efforts. A number of MCEA school district representatives and MCEA staff members serve on state policy committees and advisory groups, thereby affording Middle Cities direct input into state-level decision making.
