Press Releases

NASBE’s press releases, press conferences and interactions with the educational press communicate the members’ views on important and emerging topics. Media activities center on member-initiated study groups and task forces to heighten public awareness of the mission of state boards. Reports and projects announced through the media also establish members as vital participants in the nation’s education dialogue. NASBE also works to link board members’ national work to their local media markets.
