Recommendation Process

MNEA members are Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. The issues that unite them are protecting children and improving public education. These are the issues that drive MNEA’s and NEA’s candidate-recommendation process.

Because lawmakers’ decisions directly affect children and the education profession, MNEA needs to ensure that the candidates it supports measure up as advocates for public schools and the education employees who deliver the programs that shape America’s future. Candidates receive the recommendation of the MNEA-PAC by demonstrating a commitment to public education and upon the recommendation of local educators. For more information about the Missouri NEA Recommendation process please visit

How you vote is a personal decision; however, Missouri NEA leaders hope that, as you review the issues and positions of candidates, you will consider the recommendation of your fellow educators in the following elections.

Missouri Constitutional Amendment
The Missouri voters wanted fair. Now, keep it fair.
NO on Constitutional Amendment 3

Add the "NO on 3" frame (displayed right) to your Facebook profile picture >
Amendment 3 is a trick by politicians in the Missouri legislature to undo the groundbreaking ethics reforms passed by Missouri voters in 2018. It would alter the lines drawn for legislative districts in Missouri, allowing the most hyper-partisan and gerrymandered maps since Mississippi (circa 1972). If Amendment 3 were to become law, children would no longer count for the purposes of determining population in legislative districts.

Even though we are not at school supporting Missouri students, members continue to help every day during this crisis. MNEA wants to share your stories as we struggle through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are hearing about members who are continuing to care for their students by

  • volunteering at school district Grab & Go meal distribution centers and food drives
  • providing child care for essential medical staff
  • shopping for the elderly so they don’t have to leave the safety of their homes

Your stories help show that educators don’t stop caring. Please send your stories with pictures to MNEA at, so we can share them. You can post to social media, making sure you tag @MissouriNEA and use the hashtags  #MNEAheroes and  #MNEAprotects.
