What the heck is that?
This symbol, adopted by the NEA Executive Committee in 1966, combines the legacy of the past (the pi symbol which is the ancient Greek word for education) with new direction for the future (the red arrow ).
The spherical triangle serving as the background represents the mutually supportive programs of local, state, and national education associations to advance education. In one sentence, then, the design symbolizes the forward thrust of education through a united profession.
