The National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) represents state and territorial boards of education, state board attorneys, and state board executive secretaries. State boards of education can be found in 48 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and Puerto Rico (see below for governance models). NASBE’s principle objectives include: strengthening state leadership in education policy; promoting excellence in the education of all students; advocating equality of access to educational opportunity; and ensuring continued citizen support for public education.
NASBE’s intent is to provide timely and accurate education-related information, news, and events as information becomes available from Capitol Hill in Washington, DC and the U.S. Department of Education. Please contact NASBE if you have any comments and/or questions.
