The latest NEA “magazine” pledges to launch a campaign against toxic testing. The magazine also quotes the new CEO at NEA saying how harmful NCLB has been. Sounds good! But wait just a minute…
NEA was the group (along with AFT) that started a “Get it Right” campaign to keep NCLB going. NCLB was test heavy from day one. NEA knew this. NEA helped light the NCLB fire.
NEA currently has a “Get it Right” campaign with Common Core. The Core has been test heavy since day one. NEA knew this. NEA helped light the CCSS fire.
Claims of outrage over toxic testing from NEA and AFT are insulting. They are hoping we will not remember that AFT and NEA have been behind the curtain all this time. Yes- there is gambling in River City.
NEA and AFT continue to support diverting billions to the CCSS and that is NUTS- pretty rancid alphabet soup.
