Public funds belong in public schools. That’s why we filed an amicus brief with other education and civil rights organizations opposing the U.S. Department of Education’s attempt to divert COVID-19 relief to private schools.

NSBA brings the school board voice to courts addressing legal issues affecting public schools through its nationally-acclaimed amicus brief program. Discover the school board perspective in NSBA filings below.

U.S. schools revamp curricula in response to Black Lives Matter

"The National School Boards Associations, which advises school districts on curriculum changes, said requests for advice on crafting racially diverse educational material doubled this summer from the same period last year.

'They’re making sure teachers are teaching the right history in their classrooms,' said Anna Maria Chavez, the association’s executive director."

John Marshall keeps a picture of Breonna Taylor in his office at the headquarters of Kentucky's largest school district, a visual reminder, he says, of the need for curriculum changes that better honor and focus on Black stories.

Please stop spraying Roundup on public school property, playgrounds, parks, etc. We need to protect people's health, the soil health and the runoff into our local streams and rivers.. This product is toxic to our environment including water, land, and life. Thank you
Ban pesticides from schools. Our kids ARE our future.
ROUNDUP and other toxins need to be eliminated from the play and athletic fields in our Nations schools. There are safer alternatives. This is critical. Non hodgins lymphoma and other cancers have been linked to roundup. These are OUR CHILDREN
Way past time to get Round-Up Ready out of schools. Children are our future and deserve to be as healthy as possible.
