Astronaut and educator Barbara Morgan stands up for public schools

Hailed as “NASA’s first educator astronaut to reach orbit,” Barbara Morgan is the latest distinguished American to join the “Stand Up 4 Public Schools” campaign of the National School Boards Association (NSBA).

Morgan, a former elementary school teacher, was NASA's first educator astronaut. She served on a 13-day mission onboard the space shuttle Endeavour in 2007. She previously trained as the backup to Teacher-in-Space Christa McAuliffe, who was a member of the ill-fated 1986 Challenger mission.
