The Ohio Education Association

(OEA) represents more than 122,000 teachers, faculty members and support professionals who work in Ohio’s schools, colleges, and universities to help improve public education and the lives of Ohio’s children. OEA members provide a wide range of professional education services in communities throughout the state.

Our members teach in kindergarten classrooms, high school labs and university halls. They counsel adolescents and help students carve out career aspirations. We coach athletes and transport students to and from the schools and extra-curricular events. We provide professional services to benefit students, schools and the public in virtually every position needed to run Ohio’s schools. Since 1847, the OEA has been working to make schools better and improve public education.

OEA’s mission is to lead the way for the continuous improvement of public education while advocating for our members and the students we serve.
