    The NEA Spells Out Its Policies

    The nation's largest teachers union, the National Education Association, attracted 9,000 delegates to its annual convention in Washington, D.C. over the Fourth of July weekend. Delegates sported buttons with provocative slogans such as "Gay marriage causes Global Warming only because we are so hot!", "Hate is not a family value," "The 'Christian Right' is neither," and "Gay Rights are civil rights."

    The delegates passed dozens of hard-hitting resolutions that now become the NEA's official policy. The resolutions authorize NEA members and employees to lobby for those goals in the halls of Congress and state capitols.

    NEA resolutions cover the waterfront of all sorts of political issues that have nothing to do with improving education for schoolchildren, such as supporting statehood for the District of Columbia, a "single-payer health care plan" (i.e., government-run), gun control, ratification of the International Criminal Court Treaty, and taking steps "to change activities that contribute to global climate change."

    The NEA fiercely opposes any competition for public schools, such as vouchers, tuition tax credits, parental option plans, or public support of any kind to non-public schools. The NEA strongly opposes designating English as our official language even though such a designation is supported by more than 80 percent of Americans.

    The NEA opposes home schooling unless children are taught by state-licensed teachers using a state-approved curriculum. The NEA wants to bar home-schooled students from participating in any extracurricular activities in public schools even though their parents pay school taxes, too.

    The NEA wants many additional (job-creating) services and programs to be provided by public schools such as early childhood education (i.e., baby-sitting for preschoolers). NEA resolutions call for "programs in the public schools for children from birth through age 8," and for "mandatory kindergarten with compulsory attendance."

    NEA resolutions include all the major feminist goals such as "the right to reproductive freedom" (i.e., abortion on demand); "comparable worth" (i.e., government control of wages according to feminist ideology rather than the free market); full funding for the feminist boondoggle called the Women's Educational Equity Act; and "the use of nonsexist language," i.e., censoring out all masculine words such as husband and father.

    The NEA even urges its affiliates to work for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. The ERA was declared dead by the U.S. Supreme Court 26 years ago.

    I lasted a whole year as an English teacher in a close-in suburban high school. I liked the kids, just not my peers. I've never seen such an assortment of immature idiots. I bailed early and started a career in business and haven't regretted it a minute.

    My happiest moment was the graduation of my second son from the public school system. I did battle all the time with the admin and teachers..

    A good buddy of mine, a published author with a BA in English and several years experience as a teacher in PA applied to the NYC school system a few years ago. He was already working as a sub and wanted to make it permanent. He aced the exam, but there was an essay question, "Should the capital gains tax be cut?" They told him that the answer didn't matter, so long as he demonstrated proficiency with the language and could support an argument. When he got the results back, he was told that he gave the "wrong" answer and denied a position. It was a litmus test to weed out conservatives.

    My oldest daughter is starting Pre-K next month and fortunately, Texas doesn't seem to hire the same PC drones that we found in NY and CA. If were were still in Los Angeles, I'd have set up homeschooling before I'd have let the LA Mummified School District touch my child's mind.

    So do you plan to teach when you're out of school? Good luck to the students. I'm sure you'd fit in so well with the NEA.

    When eyes-wide-shut first came to CU, didn't he lie and pretend to be a teacher?
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.
