I received an e-mail today alerting me to this article about the NEA and the resolutions they passed at their latest convention. I have to wonder how many people who support them really know what they’re supporting. Not one of the resolutions in the article had anything to do with giving children a better education. The only items which addressed education at all were pointed at teaching them about “safe” sex and “diversity,” which is a cute code name for a homosexual lifestyle. They want both of those to be pushed on even preschool children. Most of the other resolutions had to do with making sure your children are in their control at a younger age, for more hours, and letting the school become doctor, counselor, and mentor for your child.
Why is this teacher’s union not concerned about the fact that large numbers of children are graduating from high school unable to read? Why are they not discussing ways to teach children to be better communicators, better thinkers? Why is it that so many children fall through the cracks? Can it be because the powers-that-be are far more concerned with promoting their own agendas of gay and promiscuous lifestyles than they are with actually educating your children?
What does NEA stand for, anyway? No Education Allowed?
Why aren’t parents across America screaming in protest? Is it because this movement actually started during OUR growing-up years, and we’re too stupid to realize what’s happening? Our education system has accomplished a lot–perhaps more than we think. Maybe they’ve turned us into automatons who accept what they’re told by the media, who do what the teachers tell them to, who go to work, receive their paychecks, and spend them, never questioning that this is the best way to live.
Am I wrong? Prove it! Just for starters, did you actually read the article? Are you trying to find out all you can about this? Do you CARE?
Okay, sorry. This just hit me very hard. Down from the soapbox, now. I will try to quit ranting.
