The NEA Student Program Core Values
The NEA Student Program foundations—Teacher Quality, Community Outreach, and Political Action—direct all Student Program activities and publications.
Teacher Quality encompasses pre-professional development and job preparation. Our members’ involvement in the NEA Student Program increases their ability to become quality teachers.
Community Outreach describes how NEA Student Program members engage the people and environment around them; we impact our communities—locally and globally—and value the meaningfulness of such involvement.
Political Action includes both the realization that political and legislative issues impact the education world and the initiative to get involved.
