Ready to Learn, Empowered to Teach

Ready to Learn cover

NASP is a nonpartisan professional organization whose advocacy efforts focus on issues that support children's learning and development and school psychology. We are committed to working with national, state and local to craft education policies that will help all of America’s children achieve their fullest potential.

NASP offers for inclusion in this debate an education policy platform, Ready to Learn, Empowered to Teach: Excellence in Education for the 21st Century, which outlines five principles necessary to ensure excellence in education by lowering barriers to learning and teaching.

NASP believes that providing quality, genuinely accessible education for all children is our nation’s most important responsibility and wisest investment. Services that lower barriers to learning are not ancillary to this mission but rather central to the supportive educational process necessary to prepare all of America’s children for academic success, healthy development, and responsible citizenship.

We encourage our members and others to disseminate Ready to Learn, Empowered to Teach: Excellence in Education for the 21st Century as part of the effort to shape education policies that support the needs of the whole child and truly enable teachers to teach and children to learn.
