Those serving on NASBE member boards are dedicated citizen leaders, often serving in a volunteer capacity, and they hold their board service to be of utmost importance.
At a time when states are again asserting their authority for education policymaking, NASBE is a steady strategic partner helping state boards seize the moment boldly and with a focus on all students so that boards remain in the driver’s seat.
NASBE is only national organization bringing board members together to share solutions and ideas in a nonpartisan setting. NASBE members are organized into four regions: Northeast, Southern, Central, and Western.
Regardless of where they come from, NASBE members keep equity at the center of their work. They leverage their authority to make policy, convene stakeholders, and ask questions to advance excellence in equity in diverse state contexts. NASBE captures the innovative work of state boards by tracking and analyzing the agendas of their monthly meetings via its State Board Insight database. It dives deeper into the process and policy levers involved in tackling state challenges with its State Innovations publications.
