National Poll Shows Strong Voter Support for Public Schools
The poll covered a variety of topics, including funding for public schools, public funds for private schools, oversight of charter schools, attitudes about teachers and public schools, and technology in education. NSBAC's findings should prove helpful in your efforts to communicate about the benefits of public schools.
Conversation with Alan November
As the spring semester settles in we are beginning to get close to “testing season." It is our hope that you remain a positive influence to those around you and make sure that, whether you do, or do not, like this time of year you stay true to doing what you do best and teach to make a difference in their lives.
I also hope you will be an informed voter while upholding your civic duty to make a difference in our schools. There is a saying, “bad politicians are elected by good people who don’t vote." Please make sure you carry out one of the most important things you can do in our Democratic Republic, VOTE!
