NEA will work with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards to explore the possibility of securing a reduced fee, perhaps for members participating in a cohort, as a benefit of Association membership, for NEA members pursuing National Board certification. 

Rationale/Background

NEA is the lead organization of educators. Research indicates that National Board certification improves educator performance and effectiveness. Having access to a discount would provide NEA members with an added professional value.
