When conservatives are elected to school boards, it's only a matter of time before most of them begin voting in sync with other members who are not in tune with parents or their communities. Why? New members often don't have a training alternative to the guidance of superintendents, state associations, and teachers' unions.
On February 26, 2022, Noah Webster Educational Foundation, along with five other sponsor organizations, hosted a day-long event in Virginia designed to equip newly elected school board members with professional recommendations that are not influenced by the dollars of education's political bureaucracy. We shared resources that will enable members to be independent, informed voices effectively representing their communities and bringing the best ideas to the table.

From the engaging speakers on our session panels to the event's encouraging turnout (there were about 70 people present), the day was a resounding success!

We intend to refine our focus, expand our collaboration, and extend our reach to provide summits across the country in the months and years ahead.

About NWEF
Every Monday, we bring you a new episode of The State of Education with Melvin Adams, a talk-show-style podcast designed to take you behind the scenes of American education. Our host Melvin interviews experts across the country about the latest issues impacting our schools, solutions to today’s controversies, and ways we can all band together to reclaim education for our kids.

The State of Education
NWEF's mission is to educate and collaborate with individuals and organizations to tell the story of America’s education and culture, identify foundational principles that improve it, and advance practice and policy to change it.

We facilitate nationwide conversations to raise awareness of the current state and future potential of education. We do this by 1.) capturing and telling stories, 2.) creating documentaries, 3.) promoting best practices and core principles, and 4.) equipping people for proactive engagement. We focus on the roles and impact of instruction, parents, government, faith and morality, and facilities on education.

We are passionate about creating and sharing resources that inform and equip parents, teachers, and legislators throughout the country. Not only do we facilitate School Board Summits, we also offer an Online School Board Training course, maintain a blog, and host a podcast.
