What is PSEA?

PSEA is 180,000 members strong – a community of education professionals who make a difference in the lives of Pennsylvania’s students every day.

PSEA members are teachers, education support professionals, higher education staff, nurses in health care facilities, retired educators, and college students preparing to become teachers.

PSEA’s strength comes not only from our members, but from our beliefs, our values, and our passion. Every time we speak up for what we believe, we harness the power of collective action.

Fighting for You

PSEA members are devoted to schools and students, but you don’t work for free. You deserve compensation and benefits that it takes to support a family.

PSEA works hard to make sure members have the best possible local contract and fairest possible compensation by:

  • Fighting for good salaries
  • Defending your health care benefits
  • Protecting your retirement security

Protecting You

PSEA works to make sure that your rights are protected at work, and that you have the peace of mind you need to do your job.

When you need help, PSEA is there for you by:

  • Enforcing your contract
  • Advocating before professional commissions
  • Providing low-cost legal services
  • Protecting your certification and licensure

Speaking Up For You

Educators and support professionals are the real experts when it comes to what works in schools and classrooms.

PSEA combines the voices of our 181,000 members to tell lawmakers what good education policies look like – and what ideas just don’t work for our schools and our students.

Together, we speak up to:

  • Protect your retirement security
  • Fight the overreliance on standardized testing
  • Speak out about school funding
  • Defend our professions

Supporting You

Working in public schools isn’t easy. PSEA provides an array of programs and benefits to help you succeed.

These programs include:

  • High-quality professional development courses and resources through the PSEA Professional Learning Exchange
  • Discount and savings opportunities through PSEA Member Benefits
  • Conferences and workshops
  • Magazines, newsletters, and other publications
