NSEE17_banner_resist-squareThe NSEE offers strands, or threads, of workshops that engage participants in learning about new research, tools, and strategies for improving policies and practices to close achievement, participation, and interest gaps.

Sessions address all aspects of the education system (e.g., national, state, or local level; secondary or postsecondary; urban, suburban, or rural) and focus on a particular population (e.g., students with disabilities, single/teen parents, low-income students, English language learners, students pursuing nontraditional careers, African Americans, Latina(o)s, Native Americans, LBGT students, and more). In addition, there are sessions that address policies and practices that promote educational equity, educate the whole student, support social emotional health, and use innovative technology to increase access and that address barriers to participation and completion and the closing of achievement gaps for special population students.
