Public Policy Initiatives
The AAG monitors education policy on Capitol Hill and within the federal agencies whose policies directly impact the future of geography. Below are a few of the topics the AAG is tracking:
- Threats to Geography and Social Science Funding
- Geography Education
- Letter on Academic Freedom in Turkey
Between 2004 and 2012, the AAG’s Senior Program Manager for Government Relations, John Wertman, kept the Association up to date about political news and policy developments relating to geography and geography education.
