Working with and through our state associations, NSBA advocates for equity and excellence in public education through school board leadership. We believe education is a civil right necessary to the dignity and freedom of the American people, and all children should have equal access to an education that maximizes his or her individual potential.
Our school law resources help you understand the complex legal environment, including new and emerging legal developments, and to anticipate, prevent, and overcome legal challenges.
The education of our children must become a top priority of our nation's policymakers, and we are committed to ensuring federal policies protect state and local control and accountability.
By focusing on raising student achievement through strong local governance and by actively engaging the community, school boards provide leadership for academic success in our nation’s public schools.
Our state associations represent more than 90,000 local school board members who are dedicated to educating every child to his or her fullest potential and committed to leadership for student achievement.
