NSBA’s Vision for Equity in Public Education

We affirm in our actions that each student can, will, and shall learn.  Educational equity is the intentional allocation of resources, instruction, and opportunities according to need.  We recognize that based on factors including but not limited to disability, race, ethnicity, and socio-economic status, students are deprived of equitable educational opportunities.   This requires that discriminatory practices, prejudices, and beliefs be identified and eradicated
