Becky Pringle is the vice president of the National Education Association, the nation’s largest labor union and professional association for educators. A middle school science teacher with 31 years of classroom experience, Pringle has distinguished herself as a passionate advocate focusing on issues of educator empowerment and student success, diversity, and developing future leaders. Most notably, Pringle led the work group that produced the NEA’s Policy Statement on Teacher Evaluation and Accountability — the union’s first broad endorsement of the need for a student-centered, educator-led evaluation and shared accountability system. She has served as finance chair of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards; on the Blue Ribbon Panel on Teacher Preparation for the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education; and on the Institute for Educational Leadership Task Force.
