About Us

NSBA’s Vision for Equity in Public Education

We affirm in our actions that each student can, will, and shall learn.  Educational equity is the intentional allocation of resources, instruction, and opportunities according to need.  We recognize that based on factors including but not limited to disability, race, ethnicity, and socio-economic status, students are deprived of equitable educational opportunities.   This requires that discriminatory practices, prejudices, and beliefs be identified and eradicated

NSBA’ Equity Department

NSBA has four councils that represent school board members in districts with underserved students. The councils—the National American Indian/Alaska Native Council of School Board Members (AIAN), the National Black Council of School Board Members (NBC), the Council of Urban Boards of Education (CUBE), and the National Hispanic Council (NHC)—have been working for years to ensure that school board members both understand and are equipped to support the unique needs of historically disadvantaged children.
