As public school districts feel the brunt of state budget cuts and government vouchers, it’s more important than ever to strive to maintain quality education in the public school system. This isn’t just an important issue for teachers, but for administrators, for parents, for community members and for prospective parents as well. We all play a role in providing quality education for America’s youth. So take the time to check out the NEA’s Web site and learn how you can help.
