Calling All Teachers who Aren’t Liberal Nutjobs

Here’s hoping you aren’t stupid enough to still be giving to your local NEA-affiliated labor union your hard-earned dollars.

You know, I thought that the National Education Association was supposed to be a group concerned with education. Okay, I gave up on that pipedream a long time ago when I figured out that they are more concerned with protecting bad (and sometimes even abusive) teachers than they are concerned about actually teaching children reading, writing, and math.

This was just reaffirmed for me this week when I kept hearing radio ads pushing for Obama’s healthcare plan… over… and over… and over again. All bought and paid for by the NEA.

HEY TEACHERS: THIS IS WHAT YOUR UNION DUES ARE PAYING FOR!

NEA ad

Nothing that helps you or the education of your students. Just a political agenda… a liberal political agenda.

The thing that is most upsetting about this is how misleading the these ads are. They make it sound as if a lack of healthcare is interfering with education in public schools. They ignore the hundreds of millions of dollars that we are already spending on providing healthcare to poor kids. And they ignore the fact that bad schools, bad curriculum, and yes, bad teachers are more the blame for poor education in public schools than heathcare is.

Obamacare isn’t about providing healthcare to poor kids. It’s about making everyone else pay for healthcare for adults who are too irresponsible to get it for themselves.

If you are a dues-paying member of the NEA (or your local affiliate thereof), you need to get your money back.
