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.
Anna Maria Chávez, Executive Director & CEO National School Boards Association issued a statement calling for federal support of public schools. “The need has never been more crucial for the federal government to renew its investment in public schools and provide dedicated funding for public K-12 education so that school districts will have the resources they need to address the revenue shortfalls and new expenses. Investing in neighborhood public schools is the best thing the federal government can do right now to support schoolchildren and the future of our nation. That support is needed right now.”
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.
The newly released NAEP civics, history, and geography results show that an achievement gap persists between disadvantaged students and their peers. NSBA's Center for Public Education investigates the data to learn what role lack of internet access has on NAEP civic scores.
