Understanding the NEA and Wisconsin

Most of us don't understand that the goal of the NEA is not to educate our nation's children. As Albert Shanker said, "When school children start paying union dues; that's when I'll start representing the interests of school children."

Mr. Shanker was a union organizer for the NYC's United Federation of Teachers and was their president from 1964-85.

When NEA's General Counsel of 41 years, Bob Chanin, gave his farewell address on July 9, 2009, he made these awakening remarks:

While you may not agree with the teacher's union strikes in Wisconsin, nor the poor example they set for their students, this at least gives a glimpse into their attitudes and motives.
