I’m an education communicator, but I must also consider myself a business communicator. I work for an R&D organization with an annual budget that ranges between $20 million and $25 million. Our local school district (Madison Wisconsin) has a 2006-2007 budget of nearly $333 million. The State of Wisconsin’s 2005-06 education budget was $5.8 billion. Nearly all of this is public money. Communicators in education can serve the public interest by continuing their professional development and by following best practices of both the public sector and private sector.
Ed. communicators are business communicators
