NEA’s IDEA Cadre: Educators Leading The Way
The NEA’s recently-formed IDEA Cadre are a group of nearly two dozen educators with expertise from various special and general education disciplines from diverse geographic, demographic, professional, and paraprofessional backgrounds. The IDEA Cadre works collaboratively to identify and respond to current and emerging issues through the creation of resources and trainings to support our membership and the students they serve.
The group works in four main areas, called domains, that include elevating the voice of members who are experts in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act; creating and providing resources and professional development to NEA members; strengthening and establishing new partnerships with disability organizations; and dispelling the monolithic perceptions of individuals with disabilities. Stay tuned for more updates on the great work our IDEA Cadre is doing here.
