NEA Conservative Caucus to Bolt Union
By Steve Jordahl
The National Education Association’s Conservative Educators Caucus, tired of having their voice within the union ignored, is looking to leave the NEA and join a different association. The caucus could take thousands of disaffected teachers and even entire districts with them....
“What I don’t like is really quite simple. President Hillary? It just gives me the shivers. If they’re going to be involved in politics, they should ask me to be involved. But they’re not asking. They want me to pay my dues and be quiet at this point.”
Hm. Pay the dues and be quiet. We know what's best for you. Where have we heard this before?
I wish I had the option of leaving the union and not still supporting them with my money.
You know, I calculated today that my local/state/national unions take around 2% of my pay each month? Isn't that egregious? Are there any other unions that take so much money?
