Exec. Dir. & CEO Gentzel recognized in TrustEd's 2017 list of education thought leaders

The editors at TrustEd recently compiled their 2017 list of 20 education thought leaders that contribute to the national dialogue and are worth listening to. TrustEd honored Tom Gentzel, NSBA’s executive director and CEO, by including him in the list for his advocacy on behalf of America’s public schools.

Here’s what TrustEd had to say:

While superintendents are the most visible leaders in their districts, every educator knows that the buck stops—literally and figuratively—with local school boards. As school choice breeds competition, the National School Boards Association and Executive Director and CEO Tom Gentzel have become vocal defenders of public schools. Through a mix of social media, public appearances, and blog posts, Tom’s message is that public schools already provide students and their families with a host of viable school choice options.

Our thanks to TrustEd for this recognition and congratulations to the other thought leaders in the TrustEd20.
