NEA-Alaska is an advocate for an excellent public education for each child in Alaska and to advance the interests of public school employees.
Study after study reiterates the fact that a quality teacher in every classroom supported by quality education support professionals is the number one ingredient in delivering the best education possible to our children. NEA-Alaska, an affiliate of the National Education Association, is an organization of 12,000+ members who work in Alaska’s public schools.
Every child in Alaska gets one shot at receiving the best education possible.
We take our obligation seriously and aspire to exceed the expectations of parents, communities, and most importantly, our students.
Whether it’s in a crowded urban classroom or a remote community in rural Alaska with only one school, we all aim to accomplish the same task: provide an excellent public education for every child in Alaska. Please join us in our journey.
