NEA will utilize existing resources to evaluate the financial burden that Aspiring Educators face by participating in union leadership at the state and national level and publicize their finding.

Rationale/Background

Aspiring Educators must give up a considerable amount of work to participate in state/national leadership because they don't have consistent work schedules.  AEs participating in union leadership should not have to choose between representing their union and supporting themselves.
