Find Out What Americans Want in A Public School
NEA President Reg Weaver in his February radio message explores
common ground between parents and educators. NEA members have long advocated high standards, real accountability, and a focus
on what works in the classroom. Polls show that communities believe we're on the right track.
Some Students Falter Under Testing Pressure
A Wisconsin teacher has seen many of his high-achieving students
"become so nervous about the high-stakes testing that they do poorly." NEA members in an NEA video series give a classroom-eye
view of how the new federal education law is affecting kids.
'NEA Today' Debate: Ban Cell Phones in Schools?
Some folks say mobile phones are distracting, disrupt classes,
and even facilitate cheating. Others say they can help busy kids and parents coordinate after-school activities and should
be allowed so students can call for help in an emergency (e.g. Columbine). What do you think?
School Leaders' Efforts to Motivate Fall Short Says MetLife Survey
Principals believe they're guiding, motivating, and frequently
interacting with teachers but a new national study says teachers have the opposite perception! NEA President Reg Weaver in
a recent statement shares ideas for creating a positive school culture through shared leadership.
