NSBA lists top resources on public education as a service of its national advocacy campaign, “Stand Up 4 Public Schools”

The National School Boards Association (NSBA) today posted a set of top resources on public education through its national campaign, “Stand Up 4 Public Schools.” A primary focus of the national campaign is to inform community engagement efforts around public education that support America’s public schools and our nation’s 50 million public schoolchildren. The new resource list highlights must-read books, blogs of note, data-driven research, and top articles pertinent to the campaign’s mission, and invites added suggestions from “Stand Up” followers.

Launched in April 2014, NSBA’s “Stand Up 4 Public Schools” national campaign centers on raising awareness and growing support for the great things that happen at America’s public schools. The six action-oriented steps of the campaign are: Get Informed, Get Ready, Get Connected, Get Strategic, Get Involved, and Get Results.

Well-known public figures who serve as celebrity “public school advocates” in support of the NSBA “Stand Up” campaign include basketball legend and business icon Earvin Magic Johnson, Jr; actor and motivational speaker Montel Williams; founder of the not-for-profit Khan Academy Sal Khan; and, coming soon, astronaut and educator Barbara Morgan. All campaign assets from this ad-centered campaign are in the public domain, and may be downloaded and used by the general public.

A highlights reel of a recent “Stand Up 4 Public Schools” Satellite Media Tour featuring NSBA Executive Director Thomas J. Gentzel and celebrity Montel Williams may be viewed here.
