Our Democracy, Our Responsibility, Our Time

“We, the members of the National Education Association of the United States, are the Voice of Education Professionals. Our Work is Fundamental to the nation, and we accept the profound trust placed in us!”
In the year 1857, a call was issued for educators throughout the nation to unite as one voice for the cause of public education. Their collective voice, passion, and legacy has forever changed the landscape of Public Education in America. The call for solidarity has never been louder than it is right now!
The Theme for this Year’s RA, Our Democracy, Our Responsibility, Our Time Speaks Directly to the heart and soul of our movement!
We have all been inspired & encouraged by our brothers and sisters throughout this nation who have “laid down their lives” fighting for change on the front lines for our students!
We must continue this fight to ensure that the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of our children are brighter than ever before!
More than anything, we must hold on tightly to the mission, vision, and core values of our great union to ensure we have Great Public Schools for Every Student!
Together We Can Transform The Future Of Public Education!
