Research

Currently, there is little research on student board members and their presence, engagement, accomplishments, and struggles in serving on public school boards. In order to ensure there is accurate and comprehensive information on the state of student board members across the United States, the National Student Board Member Association partners with student researchers and organizations to conduct research on student representation and outcomes.  

 

The National Student Board Member Association seeks to serve as a hub for student representation research.
