NEA May Fight for Illegals (and Abortion)

The usual suspects with the usual silliness.

Some of the almost 10,000 members of the National Education Association (NEA) attending the teachers union's annual conference this week in the nation's capital spoke out on the issues they hope their lobbyists will fight for during next year's legislative session, including the establishment of a peace academy, in-state college tuition and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who graduate from high school.

That's what some suggest, anyway.

There are signs that the NEA is not exactly united:

Pro-life teachers, students, and activists gathered at the Washington Convention Center Wednesday to picket the apparent pro-abortion stance of the National Education Association (NEA), the nation's largest teacher's union.

The actual legislative platform will be assembled during the next week or so. Stay tuned.
