Union dues at work

Mike Antonucci -- Education Week calls him "the nation's leading observer -- and critic -- of the two national teachers' unions and their affiliates" -- reports that in fiscal year 2008-09 the NEA sent money to several state affiliates "for the specific purpose of passing or defeating ballot initiatives or legislative measures." The Oklahoma Education Association received a grant for $42,529 (to push SQ 744, I presume).

Something tells me we haven't seen the last of the national money for 744.

NEA gave $340,000 directly to the HOPE campaign.
