The Federal Education Association, an NEA affiliate, represents educators employed by the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA).
DoDEA oversees 164 schools serving more than 73,000 students in 11 foreign countries, 7 states, Guam, and Puerto Rico.
For decades, DoDEA schools have produced outstanding results for our nation’s military families.
Military-connected students are top performers even though they face unique challenges such as parental deployments and frequent moves.
On the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress, the nation’s report card, eighth-graders in DoDEA schools were number one in reading.
