Wisconsin Education Policy Outreach and Practice (WEPOP) is a group of former classroom teachers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison dedicated to teacher-driven conversations about education policy. WEPOP functions as a graduate student “clinic” within the Wisconsin Center for Education Research, and is directed by Annalee Good. Through the WEPOP Clinic, graduate students and practicing Teacher Fellows partner across schools, districts, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and UW-Madison.
- Build PK-12 teachers’ capacity around federal, state, and local policy initiatives.
