MNEA Legislative Platform
Students are at the center of Missouri NEA’s legislative platform and advocacy. MNEA believes that every child has a basic right to attend a great public school. The Association strives to ensure that all students have the time and resources to learn, caring and qualified teachers and an education that inspires their natural curiosity and desire to learn.
MNEA members played a key role in the recent enactment of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). This new law puts an end to the rigid "test, blame and punish" approach of the old No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law. MNEA will work will legislators and other state leaders to provide more opportunity for all students and more time to learn.
MNEA also continues to lead the fight to defeat the proposals that would harm public education. The Association’s legislative advocacy must ensure that legislators fulfill their commitments to stand up for children and public education during the legislative session.
The Association urges the legislature to invest in the classroom priorities that build the foundation for student learning. These priorities include full funding for the foundation formula and investing in the extra services at-risk students need, such as early childhood education and extended learning time. Please sign up for the legislative update.
