What is NEA-Alaska?

NEA-Alaska is an advocate for an excellent public education for each child in Alaska and works to advance the interests of public school employees.

NEA-Alaska, an affiliate of the National Education Association, is an organization of 13,000+ members who work in Alaska’s public schools.

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.
