This week, during LPIE’s “It’s Up to All of Us” video series, parent Eli Chan sheds light on the value of “people” funded by LPIE, which makes up 72% of the support LPIE gives to our schools. These are skilled individuals who provide instruction, expanded learning opportunities, mental health services, and so much more for our students. Imagine what our children’s educational experience would be like without these people. These positions are not “extra”; they are essential.
