Don't miss our livestream with NEA president Dennis Van Roekel

The National Education Association is investing $60 million over the next ten years to improve student success and strengthen the education profession. These Great Public School Grants (GPS Grants) are one of several recently launched NEA initiatives to prepare the next generation of teacher leaders who will drive solutions for our nation’s public school students.

“With more than 3 million members working in schools and communities across the nation, NEA is a leading voice for student success and great public schools,” said NEA President Dennis Van Roekel.

“It is time for us to accelerate the transformation of public education. Nobody knows better than educators what their students need to succeed in the classroom. Through the new GPS Fund we are providing the resources to put these plans in action and help ensure opportunity, equity, and success for every public school student in America.”
