The leading advocate for public education.
In February 2022, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) retained attorney Philip Kiko and the law firm of Michael Best & Friedrich LLP to conduct an independent review of the events and procedures surrounding the September 29, 2021, letter sent from the NSBA to President Biden requesting federal investigation of and assistance with events at school board meetings. The review is now complete, and the NSBA is implementing a number of action items moving forward based on today’s findings, building on the significant steps they have already taken to address this matter. The NSBA announces these changes today under the leadership of Executive Director & CEO John Heim.
During his address at NSBA’s Annual Conference, new NSBA President Frank Henderson thanked the people who supported and encouraged him during his career while outlining a vision for public education that ensures that each child is “given the individualized, specialized, and tailored opportunity to succeed and reach their God-given potential…because every student matters.”
