NEA’s Strategic Goal for 2018-2020:

To achieve our mission, and realize our vision of a great public school for every student, we, the NEA, will grow and strengthen our Association and promote quality public education by:

  • Advancing opportunities that will identify, organize, and engage new and early career educators; amplify the voices of all educators; support our members’ professional growth; and promote social justice for our students, our communities, and our nation;
  • Securing a pro-public education environment for students, educators, and families; and
  • Building the capacity of the local, state, and national union to ensure the success of public education.

NEA’s policy documents—Resolutions, Legislative Program, Policy Statements, and the Association’s biennial Strategic Plan and Budget—are developed with input from NEA members to help advance these two strategic goals, and are adopted annually by the NEA Representative Assembly.

Your voice is critical to NEA’s policy development and strategic direction. Please use these links below to learn more, propose changes, and send questions to NEA leaders about the Association’s key policy documents.
