Committee Reports

NEA-Retired member Marilyn Warner
Through my local, state, and national involvement on various committees, I get to see the enthusiasm of active educators and hear about the projects they’re working on. It’s important to stay involved and help keep public education alive. As a retiree, I have time to work during the day and help the association.
Quote by: Marilyn Warner, Retired Elementary School Teacher
National Education Association

Great public schools for every student

NEA's 3 million members work at every level of education—from pre-school to university graduate programs. NEA has affiliate organizations in every state and in more than 14,000 communities across the United States.
