WE ARE THE VEA
When it comes to stepping up for public education in the Commonwealth, no organization can match the work—or the effectiveness—of the Virginia Education Association. VEA members, who are classroom teachers and education support professionals, have been advocating for students, educators, and schools since 1863. Many of the improvements in education since then have come as a result of Association effort.
Our 40,000 members work every day to make the Association’s vision and mission a reality.
A great public school for every child in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
To unite our members and local communities across the Commonwealth in fulfilling the promise of a high quality public education that successfully prepares every single student to realize his or her full potential. We believe this can be accomplished by advocating for students, education professionals, and support professionals.
