NEA Urges Exceptional Teachers to Apply
USA TODAY seeks nominees to the All-USA Teacher Team. More than
half of last year's winners were NEA members. Deadline: April 19.
NCLB's Emphasis on Testing Means More Rote Learning
Recent additions to our video series feature educators who discuss
ways the "No Child Left Behind" law changes how kids are taught. Educators say it narrows the teaching focus to meet testing
requirements while ignoring creative and thematic approaches to education.
NEA Study Reveals Voter Attitudes Toward Government Role in Education
The more voters know about the "real world" impact of the federal
education law also referred to as "No Child Left Behind," the more they believe it should change. Check out NEA's recently
commissioned bipartisan poll for more key findings.
'All Children, Disabled Or Not Can Make Great Achievements'
NEA believes all kids must be included in school accountability
systems, but in a way that is accurate and appropriate. In fact, the recent "Quality Counts 2004" report from "Education Week"
shows teachers overwhelmingly support high expectations and fair measurements for special needs students.
