The professional interests of KNEA members are addressed through the Instructional Advocacy division.
KNEA monitors the Department of Education and other agencies that establish rules and regulations to ensure that the highest professional standards are maintained. KNEA works closely with state Standards Board, the KNEA Practices Commission, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
KNEA sponsors workshops for teachers and Professional Development Councils (PDC) on current issues and other subjects to help teachers sharpen their teaching skills. Topics range from how to maintain classroom discipline and increase parental involvement to the latest developments in special education and the popular "Bullyproofing" classrooms.
Extensive school resources are available for members to check out, including items originally published by or commissioned by NEA. For details, see the Educator's Resource Library or the Professional and Staff Development Catalog.
