'Perfect Storm' Batters Families Paying for College
Millions of Americans are being hammered by a stagnant economy,
soaring college costs, and reductions in student aid because of federal and state cutbacks. NEA has proposed four steps to
Congress that will help lessen the financial impact on students and their parents.
Wanted: More Male Teachers
Men are in demand in America's public schools as a greater focus is placed on diversifying the historically female-dominated profession. Learn more about the economic
factors that cause men to leave or even avoid teaching and what NEA is doing to recruit them.
