NAGB, the National Assessment Governing Board, meets quarterly to make decisions on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).

NPBEA, the National Policy Board for Education, provides a forum for collaborative actions by organizations interested in the advancement of school and school-system leadership.

These “Boards” create and employ the individuals that perpetuate the failing system of education that currently exists.

These “Boards” receive federal tax dollars in order to operate.

These “Boards” and there are more, are draining educational funds from the public schools our children attend.

The current education budget is approximately $788 million dollars.

Boards and corporations usurp hundreds of millions of those dollars while telling the American public that there is not enough funding to provide an excellent education to all of America’s children.

Public funds should go to public schools to educate the public’s children.
