Everyday and across the United States, NNER members operate on four fundamental beliefs.
Our daily work is most often immeasurable. We celebrate settings across the nation who are pioneers in this work while also commending schools, universities, and community partners who are in their earliest stages. For every celebration, we also find a challenge. Our current educational climate is urgent, but this is not unlike previous decades. Since our origin in 1987, we have called attention toward practices as policies that dehumanize and demean students while advocating and working on the ground in classrooms and communities toward our fundamental beliefs.
We are teachers, faculty members, principals, social workers, superintendents, district administrators, deans, artists, non-profit leaders, law enforcement officers, and much more. We work in higher education, Pre-K-12 schools and districts, community organizations, governmental organizations, and businesses.
