At teacher union conventions, indoctrination eclipses education

OEA members are pictured here in 2019 with NEA president Lily Eskelsen García.

"As a teacher, I attended the National Education Association convention last week, and my worst fears were confirmed," Brenda Lebsack writes this week. For example, Mike Antonucci adds, convention delegates committed the NEA "to take a number of specific actions in support of abortion rights."

Meanwhile, "proposed resolutions under consideration at the annual convention for the American Federation of Teachers this week include vows to support critical race theory, classroom discussions on gender identity and sexual orientation, and demands for student loan forgiveness," Jeremiah Poff reports. Or as our communist friends over at People's World report: "Impeach three Trump Justices, and kill filibuster, AFT resolutions demand."
