NSBA's Councils: Supporting the unique needs of historically disadvantaged students

NSBA has four councils that represent school board members in districts with underserved students. The councils—the National American Indian/Alaska Native Council of School Board Members (AIAN), the National Black Council of School Board Members (NBC), the Council of Urban Boards of Education (CUBE), and the National Hispanic Council (NHC)—have been working for years to ensure that school board members both understand and are equipped to support the unique needs of historically disadvantaged children.

Motivational speaker, storyteller, musician, and homeless activist Samuel Johns’ favorite quote is from theoretical physicist Albert Einstein: "I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

It is that passion and curiosity that led Johns, an Athabascan (a Native Alaskan people) to found the Forget Me Not Movement, an effort to draw attention to and help address homelessness in Anchorage, Alaska.
