NEA Priority Schools Campaign: Disrupting the Status Quo

Priority Schools

transforming the lives of students


Turning around lower-performing schools is a high priority for the 3.2 million members of the National Education Association. By leading permanent changes in these Priority Schools, we will transform the lives of tens of thousands of students by significantly raising academic achievement.

Our commitment includes a vow to work side-by-side with communities and with policymakers in state capitals, in Congress and the Obama administration; to partner in pursuit of innovative programs to measure student success and teacher quality; and to fight to attract and keep the best educators and necessary resources for the schools of greatest need.

Disrupting the Status Quo

 

“Plain and simple, the status quo is not acceptable. We cannot continue to do in America what we’ve been doing to students for the last 20, 30, 50 years.

The world has changed and we need a different system.”

NEA President Dennis Van Roekel
