There seems to be quite a bit of support for busting the NEA, a national teachers’ union. In my own state, support seems to be growing to break through the WEA (Washington Education Association). I really like my local and so far have decent feelings about my state representation but don’t have much feeling for the national union.
I wonder if teachers need to become a force in the a part of the reforms spoken about throughout the nation. Maybe we can take charge of the evaluation reforms, the funding solutions, and the merit pay debate.
When do we take charge of our profession in politics? Should we?
