The National Education Association (NEA) is the largest labor union in the United States, with over 3,000,000 members. When the NEA speaks, all of education listens. When they don’t speak, education still listens. For the most part, Christians don’t listen either way. So now we have a runaway train that needs to be halted as quickly as possible.
Several months ago, I wandered out to the NEA web site to see what they were saying about education. I do this occasionally to see what they are up to, and it is always not good for the children in America. This particular time on the NEA website, they featured six public school teachers who openly “came out” in 2019 as homosexuals. The article praised the six brave individuals for their heroic stand to let their students know their sexual identity and hoped that in doing so, other teachers across America would be encouraged to follow their example and share their sexuality with their students. Of course, I was shocked. Why in the world would a teacher’s sexuality be pertinent to classroom instruction of any kind? Fact is, it isn’t, and the NEA’s encouragement to do so reveals the extent of utter corruption rampant throughout the NEA, and the vast chasm between what is expected of this educational organization and what they actually dish out.
What I found out is that increasing test scores, teaching techniques, and producing better teachers, are not on the NEA’s agenda, not even by a long-shot. Did you know that classroom learning is not the main objective of the NEA? For a long time, I thought that’s really why they existed until I ran across several quotes from NEA presidents, past and present. Listen to what a longtime NEA counsel Bob Chanin on his retirement farewell address to an NEA convention said,
“This is not to say that the concern of NEA and its affiliate with closing achievement gaps, reducing dropout rates, improving teacher quality, and the like are unimportant or inappropriate. To the contrary, these are the goals that guide the work we do, BUT they need not and must not be achieved at the expense of due process, employee rights, and collective bargaining. That simply is too high a price to pay. When all is said and done, NEA and its affiliates must never lose sight of the fact that they are unions, and what unions do first and foremost is represent their members.”
The NEA has become a socialists organization and a hard-line labor union with the explicit intention of teaching their liberal values to our children. They want our children to learn to be sexual from birth and learn to express their sexuality in school and let the parents know later. The NEA repeatedly misrepresents themselves as a professional employee organization. In reality, they are a labor union that works through strikes and threats for more generous salaries and perks for their members. And along the way, they teach our children their morals.
Father, In the Name of Jesus, we take our authority and tear down the ungodly structures of the National Education Association! We stand on your word: A wise man attacks the city of the mighty and pulls down the stronghold in which they trust. Prov. 21:22
