2003 Distinguished Guest Speakers
Assemblywoman Helen E.Weinstein
Assemblywoman Helen E.Weinstein visited the Children's Studies 32 class, taught by Dr. Vey, on Nov. 11.
She discussed The Child Performers Education and Trust Act of 2003, which she had sponsored.
This act "ensures that child performers who work in the state are provided with adequate education and that a portion of the child performers' earnings are kept in a child performer trust account until the age of majority; establishes the child performer's protection fund and the child performer's holding fund."
A lively discussion ensued with her and the students.
