NEA will promote the creation of a task force consisting of general education teachers, special education teachers, ESPs, specialists, administrators, community partners, and Departments of Education to make recommendations on systemic changes to preK-12 educational institutions to address educators' responses to student behaviors.

Rationale/Background

Disruptive behaviors have increased in elementary school classrooms according to teachers, administrators, and staff. Current interventions are top-down and not proven effective to manage classroom behaviors. Teachers are not supported, negatively affecting learning and morale.
