We are 135,000 strong and have a powerful voice that cannot be ignored
Our public schools need our collective voice to advocate for our students, our schools and our communities. Being a part of the Illinois Education Association means you’ll have access to the movement that looks to make a high-quality education accessible to all children in Illinois. The movement that looks to make sure our students not only graduate from high school, but have access to outstanding community colleges and universities right here in Illinois. The movement that prepares students for the workforce and for life. The movement that is working towards making sure all our educators from our professors and teachers to our bus drivers and maintenance crews earn a living wage. The movement that grows stronger every day and will never stop fighting for our students and for public education.
