Through the Noise #137
Kris Amundson // Executive Director // National Association of State Boards of Education
Today’s nonprofit problem of the week: Wonky mobile apps that inexplicably changed fonts. Have you had issues with your mobile app behaving erratically? Infamia can help… Join us today for a conversation with Kris Admundson, the Executive Director of the National Association of State Boards of Education as we explore some of the new “No Child Left Behind” law and what it means for state boards of education, local community organizations, teachers, and students. Representing the Education Boards of 37 states, the NASB walks a difficult line – working to emphasize the skills necessary for all students to thrive while respecting the idiosyncratic characteristics of wildly different areas across our diverse country.
Kristen Amundson is executive director of the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE). She is a former member of the Virginia House of Delegates (D-Fairfax) and former chair of the Fairfax County School Board.
The National Association of State Boards of Education is the only national organization giving voice and adding value to the nation’s state boards of education. A non-profit organization founded in 1958, NASBE works to strengthen state leadership in educational policymaking, promote excellence in the education of all students, advocate equality of access to educational opportunity, and ensure continued citizen support for public education.
