National Education Association - its goal for our children

Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, Bisexual caucus of the National Education Association.

They have an agenda for your children - and it's not one you'd like. But it they - not you - control the curriculum. These are people who do not marry, do not have children, do not worry about the next generation.

At its recent annual meeting in July in Orlando, Florida the Natinoal Education Association (NEA) passed several resolutions including -

* NEA overwhelmingly passed a resolution (B 10) endorsing gay marriages and adoptions in states where they're legal.

* NEA recommended that gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues be required content for teacher credentialing. (Teachers would be forced to undergo sensitivity training concerning homosexuality before they could be certified to teach.) Here is the wording of the resolution: "That NEA advocate for the inclusion of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender issues in the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) teacher education program review process."

* NEA voted to replace the word "tolerance" toward homosexuality with "acceptance and respect" in union policies. The author of New Business Item 52 used this rationale: "We should teach acceptance and respect, not tolerance, of those who are different from us wherever appropriate."

But one resolution the NEA did not pass - amendment I 24.

NEA refused to pass an amendment (I 24) designed to protect students against sexual misconduct by teachers. The amendment read "To protect the rights of all students, the Association believes sexual contact between education professionals and minor students is unacceptable." The NEA refused to pass the amendment and referred it back to the Resolutions Committee. Many feel that the NEA refused to pass the amendment in order to protect teachers who have sex with students.

Thought experiment - do you think these people are Democrats - or Republicans?
