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.

School Health & Safety

Our students reach their fullest potential when they—and their educators—are healthy and safe in their schools.

Recruit and Retain Educators

Solving the teacher shortage, along with shortages of support staff like bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and custodians, requires long-term, evidence-based strategies.

Teacher Quality

Teachers strive for excellence. They challenge themselves so they are better able to meet the needs of their students and their families.

Standardized Testing & Student Assessment

Our current assessment systems continue to over-rely on standardized tests, but students aren't standardized. There are better, more equitable ways to assess students' learning, knowledge, and skills.
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.
