The National Education Association is a 3.2 million member professional organization and labor union representing public school teachers, education support staff, faculty, retired educators and college students in the process of becoming teachers. In 1966, the NEA Executive Committee adopted the “Symbol of the United Education Profession”. The Symbol joins the past, which is represented by the ancient Greek pi, with a red arrow, which symbolizes the new direction for the future. The white pi and red arrow are centered in a blue triangle, which represents local, state and national education associations working in harmony to advance education.
