(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) The National Education Association’s annual conference has started, and the union is calling for a vote on national policies for mandatory masking, creating a list of enemies and rejecting the words “mother” and “father.”
The Chicago-based conference has an extremely woke agenda and issues that seem to have more to do with politics than educating children.
According to the Daily Wire, the organization does not even seem to recognize the membership of heterosexual male membership.
“NEA is a social justice union that is a majority female and trans and gender non-confirming folx,” one New Business Initiative (NBI) says, calling to “publicly stand in defense of abortion” and calling abortion limits an attack on “students, families, and communities.”
Another “NBI” regards “a national policy of mandatory masking and COVID vaccines in schools, as well as high-quality virtual education for immuno-compromised students and all families who want it.”
The third item stated it will publicize its commitment to “young people’s right to learn about and develop their own sexual orientation and gender identity.”
There is also a vote slated regarding using language such as “birthing parent” and “non-birthing parent” instead of mother and father.
There are several expensive proposals up for vote, but one initiative calls for spending $140,000 on opposition research about the “largest 25 organizations that are actively working to diminish a students’ [sic] right to honesty in education, freedom of sexual identify [sic], and teacher autonomy.”
NBIs must be voted on by selected delegates to pass. The union has a history of passing radical proposals.
In 2019, a motion to “rededicate itself to the pursuit of increased student learning” was voted down. Meanwhile, a motion was approved to increase “discussions around support for reparations” and incorporate “the concept of ‘White Fragility’ into NEA trainings.”
After receiving some flack for their “business items,” the NEA made the NBIs private. The vote proceeds later in the conference.
