Inequity remains a troubling reality for many public school students. Our schools are no longer recognized for their longstanding role in fostering citizens, and despite monumental progress in providing access for girls, children of color, and children with disabilities, we have allowed schools to grow even more segregated, racially and socioeconomically. We urgently need a renewed commitment to public education.
For over 30 years, the National Network for Educational Renewal (NNER) has worked across the nation to improve the reality of public school children and their communities. Our approach is distinct with an emphasis on enduring impact. We are experts in school districts, universities, and community organizations and businesses. Our nonprofit organization works to improve public school education with a keen focus on improving teacher education programs and schools simultaneously. Currently, NNER national member settings represent universities/colleges and k-12 school districts, ranging from rural to urban demographics and encompassing the entirety of racial and socioeconomic spectrums. Our members benefit from a rich network of teachers and teacher educators committed and immersed in the improvement of public schools.
We engage in ongoing professional development and distribution of resources and best practices. Yearly, we coordinate the NNER Annual Conference as the prime opportunity for members (and beyond) to engage in person. Yet, while the work of NNER continues to evolve and progress, we know we cannot do it alone. NNER relies on similar educational organizations to further this work in solidarity, and we depend on donations from individuals and organizations like you.*
