Highlights of the NEA National Convention

Courtesy of the Education Intellegence Agency:

-Guess what teachers, dues for the NEA will be going up $1 a year for the next two years. Where does your dues go? Well, NEA staff pay and benefits will be going up over 9% over the next two years. Are you getting a 9% raise any time soon?

-A resolution was passed stating that the NEA is against any form of voter ID, something that is needed if you happen to vote in NEA elections.

-A resolution was passed donating $10,000 to injured striking teachers in Mexico. Regardless of how brave I think striking teachers are, I don't remember this being the Mexican Teachers Union.

Any of you memebers remember a ballot for these measures?
