The National Education Association needs to be dismantled and repurposed from top to bottom. It has been totally taken over by cultural Marxists and social justice warriors. Is that over the top? Read on….

About the NEA from Influence Watch (emphasis added):

The National Education Association (NEA) is America’s largest labor union … with affiliates in every state across 14,000 communities, NEA represents teachers, education support professionals, retired teachers, education faculty and staff, substitute teachers, and administrators.

None a dime’s worth of difference.

[As an aside, I happen to support “advocating for change,” too, but in a diametrically OPPOSITE direction to the blatant leftwing malarkey
