NEA Resolutions

NEA adopted a series of resolutions (probably hundreds) at its annual convention in early July. What are these resolutions that we dues-paying members of the union are now supposed to support? No one knows.

No one knows because they're not published in the NEA Today (only some are), and they're not available on the web, either. From an email I received:
Unfortunately, the 2005 Resolutions have not yet been posted to the Web site. We expect to have them posted soon. I'm sorry for the

Remember, these were adopted in early July. 2 1/2 months ago. Are they hiding something?

Darren: Send me your e-mail and I'll send you the 2003-04 NEA Resolutions in Acrobat format. Then pick the ones you are most interested in and I will be able to tell you if their language was changed in any way during the 2005 convention. It takes some time to incorporate all the amendments and publish the new version, but NEA has 580 highly paid employees; you would think they'd be done by now.

I've received personal emails from Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit), Joanne Jacobs, Kimberly Swygert (Number 2 Pencil), and Edwonk--but all of those were responses to my emails.

This is the first time, to my knowledge, that a big-name blogger (well, he is to me and to those of us in education circles), a celebrity, if you will, has visited my site uninvited.

I feel all googly inside :-)
