But, won’t say his name
Education Week reports (subscription?) the National Education Association (NEA) has just voted “No Confidence” in the administration’s current education reform plans.
The union refused to directly name the President in their resolution, but as one delegate pointed out, “…even if NEA wouldn’t connect the dots, the media and public would have no problems doing so.”
The union’s biggest credibility problem, however, is that they don’t have anything of promise to offer as a counter to Race to the Top. The union fusses that testing and holding educators accountable is causing all sorts of problems. However, it is clear that the largely non-accountable status quo in education, which seems to be what the union wants to continue, is a recipe for disaster for children.
Many in the public know it. And, even the President does, too.
