The leading advocate for public education.
Two New NSBA Resources
In response to President Joe Biden’s announced new policies on vaccination and testing to keep schools and the economy open, NSBA interim Executive Director and CEO Chip Slaven released the following statement.
In response to the Arizona School Boards Association’s lawsuit seeking to overturn an Arizona law that prohibits school boards from requiring masks in schools, NSBA has filed an amicus curiae brief in Arizona state court informing courts about the realities schools face in navigating restrictive laws and mandates where communities need flexibility.
NSBA’s Center for Public Education studied data sources in health and education at all levels of government to provide a comprehensive national picture on vaccines, face masks, and instructional models during the 2021-22 school year.
Nearly 17 million public school students in the U.S. lack adequate access to high-speed broadband and/or internet devices. In our new video, a ninth grader in rural Oregon and a first grade teacher in urban Maryland share their experiences with the homework gap.
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.
