The leading advocate for public education.
We continue to update our coronavirus page with information and resources to help schools follow federal, state, and local health authorities’ guidelines on current measures to determine the right actions for their individual communities. Our commitment at NSBA is — first and foremost — to ensure the health and safety of our members and staff and the students and school personnel in our charge.
NSBA is pleased that the U.S. Department of Education withdrew its equitable services interim final rule following the association’s multiple efforts to prevent its implementation. The rule would have diverted a disproportionate share of emergency funds to private schools at the expense of disadvantaged public school students.
The pandemic has highlighted many areas that need improvement in the American education system. NSBA’s Center for Public Education analyzed data collected during remote learning to assist school leaders in making informed decisions that will promote positive transformations in education.
As states and school districts consider different reopening options, data about school personnel become critical for school leaders to seek creative solutions to meet challenges brought about by the pandemic.
The Center for Public Education selected relevant data from the Condition of Education to help school leaders not only monitor the educational progress of Black students, but also rethink what public schools can do better for Black students.
