Student Success

Student success is about their future. And ours.
Each and every student deserves a quality public education. NEA is uniting our members and the nation to ensure all students have the resources they need to fulfill their potential and their dreams.
Educators, leaders, parents, caregivers, neighbors, concerned citizens–we all contribute to giving each and every student an equal opportunity to get a great public education. Here’s how you can get started and stay involved.

Great Public Schools

All students deserve schools with the resources, programs, and curriculum to nurture their curiosity, imagination, spirit, talents, and desire to learn.

Engaged Families & Communities

Parents, grandparents, caregivers, friends, neighborhood advocates: we all have a role to play in supporting student learning in the classroom and beyond.

Smart & Just Policies

Our democracy will flourish only when we ensure every school is fully funded, every child is treated with dignity, and every learner can pursue their passion. Here’s how we get there.
NEA member Robin McNair
The most important piece in education is the child. I want to tell young people you are important, you are loved and cared for and I am here to help you reach your highest potential.
Quote by: Robin McNair, Restorative Practices Coordinator, Maryland State Education Association
2019 Salem Kaizer RA delegates
