NEA Strategic Framework & Budget

The biennial Strategic Plan and Budget focuses our energy and resources to reflect our commitment to great public schools for every student.

NEA has adopted eight Policy Statements that set forth the Association’s position on a range of pressing education issues. We invite our members to read them, ask questions, and propose amendments.
