NEA Hastens Death of American Education
INSIGNHT magazine ^ | January 6, 2003 | Ralph de Toledano

Posted on 01/08/2003 10:10:01 AM PST by Stand Watch Listen

The National Education Association (NEA), just prior to the anniversary of the horror of the Twin Towers attack, urged its members in a directive not to lay blame on Islamic terrorists but instead to lecture students on America's sins. For a day or two, there were some indignant outbursts. But few pointed out the connection between the unconscionable state of American education and the ideological hold the NEA has on our public schools and system of higher education.

Millions of high-school graduates pick up their diplomas though remaining functionally illiterate. Education no longer educates as it once did but indoctrinates in perverse antisocial and immoral values -- frequently attacking our Judeo-Christian heritage. In a country that spends more for education than any other (both gross and per capita), the quality of education is among the lowest in the industrialized world.

The City College of New York (CCNY) and Hunter College, two of New York's public colleges, once had the highest academic ratings in the country, with CCNY requiring a 90-point average for entrance. Then, with "open admissions," those formerly great educational institutions were moved by the politically correct NEA winds -- if you breathed, you were in. The city's foremost elementary- and secondary-school systems now are a jungle and in shambles. Political correctness is the order of the day in academia.

The responsibility is clear. But educationists vehemently deny that the answer lies in the corruption of principles and curricula by teachers' colleges and school administrators -- the wor* of the NEA.

Meanwhile, the NEA's annual budget is well more than $300 million, 10 times that of the entire AFL-CIO. Its membership, roughly 2.2 million, is second only to the Teamsters. Back in the 1970s, it was saying, "We are the biggest potential striking force in the country. We are determined to control the direction of education. We will become the foremost political force in the country." Since then, it thoroughly has infiltrated the U.S. Department of Education. It runs thousands of its members through "political-action workshops," sometimes giving graduate-study credit to attendees. In one election year alone, its political-action committees threw some $250 million into Democratic campaigns.

The NEA has a stranglehold on education and is the most actively radical, extremist and strike-prone union in labor's pantheon. It is employing its dollars and political clout to force Congress to shift control of education away from state and local governments to Washington, easier to manipulate than 50 state legislatures.

The history of the NEA is an interesting one. In 1938, it was an association of educators led by John Dewey. But in that year the Institute for Social Research, founded by the Comintern, appeared on the Columbia University campus, taking over Teachers College, the country's most influential school of education. Better known as the Frankfurt School, it had contributed to the death of the Weimar Republic and its delivery to the Nazis, and then fled to the United States.

In ideology, the Frankfurt School eschewed the economic aspects of Marxism and promulgated a substitute based on Marx's 1843 preachments. Later labeled neo-Marxism, the program called for the destruction of religion, the family, education and all moral values, along with the capture of the intellectuals and the instruments of mass communication such as press, radio and films. To this it appended a new Freudianism, which reduced human relationships to rampant sexuality and the grossest pleasure principles -- a program its secret founder boasted "will make America stink."

The Frankfurt School's program, implemented by the NEA, made the goal of education not to educate the young but to give them an anarchic "self-esteem" and deprive them of any sense of what's wrong or right. The "track" system, whereby the bright students could learn at a faster pace and the less bright at a pace of their own, was abolished, condemning the brighter students to boredom and the slower to frustration. And it preached the alienation of children from parental guidance, urging them to "inform" on their families, as in Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany.

Since the 1940s the NEA, the richest union in the country, has organized an average of 4,000 "political activists" in every congressional district to campaign for its radical program. It has the most powerful lobby in Washington, since teachers are regular voters, which keeps the Democratic leadership in thrall and blocks any legislation that will rescue public education from the pit it was pushed into by the NEA. Its 1970s slogan objectives have been achieved.

The NEA's openly avowed goal today: "To tap the legal, political and economic powers of the U.S. Congress. We want ... sufficient clout [to] roam the halls of Congress and collect votes to reorder the priorities of the United States of America." Democratic candidates see only the NEA's lavish contributions and teams of political organizers.

Meanwhile, the NEA fights the voucher system because it will offer real education to the poor and the lower middle class, which cannot afford to take their children out of the jungles of public education and enroll them in private schools. And it has good reason to: The voucher system will break the NEA's power over public education. That, of course, is what matters to the NEA. And Johnny, who cannot read, remains the victim.

Meanwhile, the NEA's annual budget is well more than $300 million, 10 times that of the entire AFL-CIO. Its membership, roughly 2.2 million, is second only to the Teamsters.

The NEA has become so influential in American society that it has become worthy of regulation in the manner of utilities, the stock market and other unions. The Taft-Hartly Act was passed in the same vain to temper the power of unions.

The NEA, and its elite socialist agenda, is not conducive to the Democrats "progressive" social agenda for the blue collar constituents that the Democrats claim to champion. The NEA is bad for the Democrats and worse for America. Its only purpose is to advance the interests of its own "Nomenclatura", as the article insinuates.

When I was young (late nineteen fifies), my father told me that "communists" were infiltrating our education system. I suppose many would laugh at that. But I also suppose the goal would be to hurt our education system and our country. Is that not what the NEA and its followers have done and are doing? Why aren't these people in jail?

My daughter felt she had to temporarily join the NEA while she was student teaching because a membership provided some kind of lawsuit insurance in case a student falsely charged her with improprieties. Her college required this insurance.
Tort reform would be helpful for this reason, too. (Now that she is teaching, she dropped her membership.)

Thy Voice In My Behalf: Teacher Union Political Spending

"It’s typical for about half the money the union PACs collect in a cycle to be contributed to candidates or as soft money, while the rest is spent on administration, transfered to other PACs, or carried over to the next cycle. During the 1998 election cycle, NEA spent $1,853,390 in direct contributions. Most of these were in $10,000 chunks to House Democrats..."

"Using the CRP database, EIA constructed a list of the top soft money contributors to state Democratic Party committees for all 50 states. In 25 states, NEA ranked in the top 30 contributors and took first place in four states (Florida, Maine, Michigan and Wisconsin)..."

(EIA Reports)


This Week's News: Members File Class Action Suit Against NEA Members Insurance Trust

Internal NEA sources tell EIA that a class action lawsuit has been filed against the union and the insurance arm of its Member Benefits Corporation for failing to distribute a $17.3 million windfall to members who participated in the members-only insurance plan.

NEA offers perks through its Member Benefits Corporation that include credit cards, banking and mortgage services, and insurance. In December 2001, NEA held a group life insurance policy on behalf of some 400,000 members with the Prudential Insurance Company. That month, Prudential converted to a stockholders’ company, a process known as demutualization. It distributed shares of stock to all its policyholders, including some 600,000 shares to NEA that were valued at $17.3 million.

The lawsuit arose from the fact that NEA itself holds the policy, not the individual members who participate. The union therefore felt justified in keeping the Prudential stock proceeds for the Members Insurance Trust itself rather than go through the cumbersome process of distributing payments of less than $40 to each of the member participants. An unidentified member, on behalf of a class of all participants in the NEA insurance program as of December 2001, filed suit in U.S. District Court, seeking distribution of the money to the members.

In ideology, the Frankfurt School eschewed the economic aspects of Marxism and promulgated a substitute based on Marx's 1843 preachments. Later labeled neo-Marxism, the program called for the destruction of religion, the family, education and all moral values, along with the capture of the intellectuals and the instruments of mass communication such as press, radio and films.

A paragraph of nonsense! This guy offers himself as an example of the failure of American Education! Marx's Economic and Philophical Manuscripts, the "preachments" to which he refers, were written in 1844. Not an accurate description of the Frankfurt School anyway. What are "the grossest pleasure principles?" If he doesn't approve of Freud, then why use one of his phrases, unintelligably at that, to critize him? After we get rid of the NEA can we also do away with journalists who dabble in philosophy and critical theory?

2) Sign the online proclamation: www.sepschool.org/Proclamation/

In 1978 or so my wife and I came to know a young woman named Patty. She was a devoutly religious young mother who'd become more devout when her husband and father of her two small sons aged 2 and 6 informed her that he was leaving. In dire economic straits, I offered to let her stay in our former home in Chamblee -- which was not rented at the time – rent-free until she got back on her feet. She had been clandestinely home schooling the 6 year old for about 2 years using very well done Christian course materials from an organization in Texas the name of which escapes me. The lad had recently been tested and had placed at least a year ABOVE his chronological age. As required by the government school authorities at the time, she dutifully apprised the authorities of his scores.

For reasons which would become clear in a moment, Patty had been harassed by the DeKalb County school authorities for about 6 months and, by the time she moved into the Chamblee house, had been -- unbeknownst to us -- ORDERED to put the 6 year old into the nearest government elementary school or suffer the consequences. Because she wanted the boys to be educated Christians, there was no way she was going to do that and she told them so.

At approximately 2 am one morning, a loud knock on the door announced the arrival of the aforementioned "consequences." Dressed only in a nightgown, she was confronted by several burly police officers who thrust an arrest warrant in her face. With the now awakened 6 year old watching and the 2 year old wailing in the other room, she was handcuffed and led out the door to jail. She was tossed into a large cell with a couple of hookers and a junkie who spent much of the rest of that morning vomiting in the corner. The two young boys for whom the educational authorities professed such great concern were just left AT THE HOUSE -- ALONE! Patty was later told that the bureaucrats from Children Services who were SUPPOSED to accompany the cops were late and, in their haste to get this dangerous miscreant behind bars, the cops just missed the fact that the Children Services people were, well, missing. The CS folks showed up an hour later to find two terrified kids, one of whom had just seen his mother hauled off in cuffs.

Patty was ultimately brought to trial under the Georgia Truancy Statutes. Her pro-bono attorney tore the school authorities to shreds and hers has been called THE case that opened the floodgates to home schooling in Georgia. Once they had all the facts, the jury didn’t take long to acquit her. I’m proud to have played a small part in that.

At Patty’s trial, a previously overlooked aspect of the government schools was put into sharp focus for those paying attention: The Director of Instruction for DeKalb County testified that the then current 7 hour school day consisted of an average of approximately 3 hours or less of instruction. At that time, Patty was devoting 4 to 5 hours a day to direct instruction.

He also as much as admitted that the REAL reason they wanted ALL these kids in school was the $3,000.00 per kid per year they then got from the state and federal government. Empty seats = lost funds. As in most things, follow the money. Patty home schooled these two boys through high school.

And how did the boys turn out?

One is now a physician and the other a budding journalist.

But that now seems to be the norm for the growing legions of home schooled kids – which most likely explains why the NEA and the government school folks feel so threatened. Home schooled kids are kicking butt in every category all over the nation.

Thomas Jefferson believed an EDUCATED PUBLIC to be the cornerstone of the system he and the other Founders TRIED to leave behind. He would NOT, I feel certain, be a big fan of the current government education system. If he returned today, he’d home school -- just as he did before.
