Celina Pierrottet; Joseph Hedger – National Association of State Boards of Education, 2023
While schools have seen an influx of federal and state dollars for more services to combat the youth mental health crisis, parents have often been overlooked as allies.

Hao, Winona – National Association of State Boards of Education, 2022
The pandemic hit the already vulnerable early childhood education (ECE) workforce especially hard, causing almost 40 percent of child care providers to shut their doors and many teachers to lose their jobs.

Politically charged education issues roiled the 2022 races for seats on state boards of education, yet none of the boards flipped partisan control. However, majority parties expanded their representation on boards in Colorado, Kansas, and Utah so far. Of the 63 seats on the ballot for 12 state boards, 35 incumbent candidates were reelected.

Pierrottet, Celina – National Association of State Boards of Education, 2022
Teachers need training and support to address the secondary traumatic stress (STS) they may experience as well as identify and address students' trauma. To ensure that all teachers can do both, state leaders need to embed trauma-informed practices in mandated teacher training on trauma and self-care. A trauma-informed education system will ensure…

Blanco, Megan – National Association of State Boards of Education, 2022
School-based health services (SBHS) are a convenient, powerful, yet underused strategy to meet student needs and increase equitable access to healthcare.

There are many types of jobs under the heading education support professionals (ESPs): paraeducators, technical service workers, skilled trade workers, and health workers.
