WHY JOIN? (click here for a PDF flyer)

  • Joining the NSEA gives you a voice in decisions that affect your classroom and career. Whether pursuing change, speaking at school board meetings, seeking increased funding, or advocating for education with state elected officials, NSEA supports you and your students.
  • NSEA has worked with our local associations to increase teacher salaries from 45th in the nation in 2001, to 31st in 2021-22. As a member, you can join in the efforts to promote professional pay, health care and retirement security.
  • As a member, you join forces with fellow educators to make a difference in the issues that matter most to you and that affect your students’ lives. The association works to achieve opportunities for all students and provides training to members to develop new teaching strategies.
  • Because the liability potential is so serious for public education employees, NEA provides all eligible association members with professional liability insurance (NEA Educators Employment Liability Insurance).
