From the Wall Street Journal today:
$2.3M fighting against school vouchers – even though even Washington DC Democrat politicans admit they work.
$20K to poll on a state constitutional convention.
$60K to oppose property-tax cuts.
“NEA finished 2007-08 with a surplus of nearly $5.9 million, which means the union will enter the 2008-09 school year with almost $20 million available to spend.”
Wouldn’t it be nice if the union that mis-educates America’s future spent its time and money on the classroom instead of partisan politics?
WSJ July 28: No, Sen Obama, vouchers are a successful, market-driven answer to the failures of the teacher unions of the past 40 years.
As stated in a letter to the Journal by a subscriber: “The teachers’ unions have had their chance for the last 30 years and things continue to get worse. It’s time for competition in public education. If that means students flee failing public schools, so be it.”
