Cost-saving member benefits. Through the buying power of the NEA's 3.2 million members, you'll have acess to hundreds of great programs from NEA Member Benefits. Check out and you will see great rates on insurance, mobile phone plans, home financing, and much more!


Help and Legal Protection. It takes only one unfounded accusation to turn your career upside down.

Grant opportunities. Every year, The SCEA members apply for grants from the NEA Foundation to support instructional innovation, leadership, and other priorities. If you have a great idea, we can help make it happen.


Classroom ideas. You'll benefit from great instructional ideas through the curriculum and classroom areas of our website and publications. Add to that your access to the NEA web site, and you have a treasure chest of strategies and tips to sharpen your craft.


Collegiality. Teachers understand and support one another. Through The SCEA, you and your colleagues have the opportunity to discuss and act on the professional issues that matter to you. And our meetings, events and conferences are a great opportunity to meet and learn from other educators!


Influence. As the largest organization of professional educators in South Carolina, we have the ear of legislators to talk about education funding and issues important to you.
