So, here's an interesting look into the NEA's motivations--and much to no one's surprise really, they aren't in it for the children, or for educational improvements. They are in it for the power, the union dues, and as long as pushes for educational reform don't interfere with collective bargaining, then they might allow it but it's certainly not first priority. Don't believe me?? Hear it from the horse's mouth--the farewell speech given by the outgoing NEA top lawyer (Bob Chanin) in 2009 (via Big Government).
