In all communications and public speeches, NEA will include references to its diverse membership, and, on occasion, mention some, if not all of the job classifications PK-12, Higher Education, and Education Support Professionals. 


Despite the highly diverse members organized by the NEA and its affiliates, the public perceives our membership as solely representing preK through 12 members. Naming our membership groups shows that diversity and that the NEA embraces all of its members.
