Why Associate with MEA-NEA?

March 5, 2015 // 0 Comments

Many teachers continue paying dues to Michigan Education Association (MEA) whose leadership has earned a reputation for giving itself hefty raises, not to mention the fact that MEA-NEA’s leadership is clearly a promoter of a Progressive Left agenda.  In the past, Phyllis Schlafly has documented the Progressive Left agenda of the NEA, but the NEA’s own annual resolutions speak volumes in and of themselves.  MEA’s [Read More ... ]
