Because school is the perfect place for underage children to talk about their sexual preferences...

Educators' Union Lays Strategy to Offset Attacks on Pro-Homosexual Policies
(AgapePress) - The National Education Association (NEA) has adopted a new strategy to counter opposition to the formation of Gay-Straight Alliance clubs in public schools, and has condemned opponents of those clubs.

At its recent convention in Los Angeles, representatives of the 2.7-million-member NEA voted overwhelmingly to develop a comprehensive strategy to deal with "the new and more sophisticated attacks" against policies that create a safe environment for "gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender" (GLBT) students in schools. The Washington Times quotes the chairman of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Caucus of the NEA, who asserted that "extremist groups are using increasingly sophisticated and aggressive tactics to attack school districts with affirming GLBT policies, curriculum, and practices."

The NEA, or as myself and former Education Secretary Rod Paige like to call them: the "terrorist organization" insist on adopting "resolutions" on various social issues like abortion and homosexuality that have absolutely nothing to do with educating our children.

Cancel that, they have everything to do with educating our children. What kind of educational atmosphere do you have when sexual groups are meeting before, during, and after school? How is the learning environment affected by the thousands of pregnant teens who are told that there are no consequences for their actions and that "they are going to do it anyway."

For the teachers, or any union members who read this and don't subscribe to the extreme liberal orthodoxy. Might I suggest you put your union dues towards a better cause, one that you believe in.

I have chosen not to send my money to the NEA since the beginning of my teaching career.

You know it costs like $70 a month for dues to the OEA & NEA?

You can choose not to give to the NEA; but you have to give to the OMEA or they take even more out of your check to pay your "fair share."

Diesel said...

Sorry, looking at pay stubs, it was $65 a month just for the OEA and the Salem EA. Doesn't even count the NEA.

Don, I hope that you follow JWaler's example and donate to charity instead. Otherwise your money could end up supporting "screw abstinence" parties.

Or worse...Hillary for Prez.

No doubt.
