Weakening the NEA is the single most important domestic initiative. The NEA controls the minds and pursestrings of the Leftist liberal agenda and has infiltrated every aspect of social/educational policy in the last 25 years or so. Many educators fear the NEA's power and fear what can happen to them if they criticize the NEA.
Exactly correct. They have now included in that agenda trying to foist homosexual "tolerance" and values on students.
So, for all those President Bush defenders out there, I ask this very simple question.
What has W done to take on the NEA today, yesterday, this week, this month, this year?
If he won't carry the torch for conservatives on an issue against a group that lobbies and finances his opponents at every turn and opposes every value that made this country great he _cannot_ be considered a Conservative.
For those posters who blabber on about "tactical" this and "Congressional Election" that I ask you:
Why won't Bush take on this insidious leftist group? Why won't he expose their vicious attempts to brainwash the children of America?

To ask is to answer.

Apparently you are unaware that the NEA is whining because the accountability standards in the education bill are too hard. If the schools do not meet those standards, the money is not there and will follow the children to another school.
The net effect of this is that if these whiners want to keep their jobs, they are going to have to teach children to read, rather than engaging in a lot of social nonsense. The NEA is now in the position of being against the education bill and admitting that some of their members CANNOT TEACH.
In my opinion, the decline in influence of the NEA will follow, as their true nature becomes apparent.
Much better to handle it this way, rather than setting oneself up to be portrayed as the "enemy of education." In other words, there is more than one way to skin a cat.
