"What we really need is fewer people that think there's one single thing to fixing our public schools." – Lily Eskelsen García

Education is repeatedly noted as one of the topics citizens care most about, especially in election cycles. Teachers and teacher unions have surfaced as a topic in the Republican presidential candidate debates, and Ohio schools have been front-page news recently.

At this critical time, National Education Association (NEA) President Lily Eskelsen García will discuss the role of educators and educator unions in developing an education system that best serves the needs of the nation and its children. Elected in 2014, she believes that professionalism carries the responsibility to take action, individually and collectively, to fight to make the promise of public education a reality and to prepare the whole and happy child to succeed in becoming a whole and happy adult.

Join us for the opportunity to learn how the head of America's largest education organization and largest union sees NEA and other organizations taking action to promote excellence in America's schools.
