Some NEA Resolutions Passed at previous NEA conventions
1870. The National Teachers Association merged with the National Association of School Superintendents and the American Normal School Association to become known as the NEA
WAY BACK IN 1970. Chester Pierce, Professor of Education and Psychiatry at Harvard tells the Association for Childhood Education International in Denver that “every child in American entering schools at the age of five is insane because he comes to schools with certain allegiances toward our founding father, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity
A-26. Voucher Plans and Tuition Tax Credits. The Association opposes voucher plans, tuition tax credits, or other such funding arrangements that pay for students to attend sectarian schools.
A-35. Federally or State-Mandated Choice/Parental Option Plans. The Association believes that federally or state-mandated parental option or choice plans compromise free, equitable, universal, and quality public education for every student. Therefore, the Association opposes such federally or state-mandated choice or parental option plans.
B-1. Early Childhood Education. The National Education Association supports early childhood education programs in the public schools for children from birth through age eight. These programs must be available to all children on an equal basis and should include mandatory kindergarten with compulsory attendance.
(indoctrination starts almost at child birth, they want your children and they want them for life}
B-12. Diversity. The National Education Association believes that similarities and differences among race, ethnicity, color, national origin, language, geographic location, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identification, age, physical ability, size, occupation, and marital, parental, or economic status form the fabric of a society. The Association also believes that education should foster the values of appreciation and acceptance of the various qualities that pertain to people as individuals and as members of diverse populations.
(all the communist buzz words -race-gender-sexual-gender-marital-economic-much of their indoctrination platform revolves around these words and the leftist political ideology)
B-14. Racism, Sexism, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identification Discrimination. Discrimination and stereotyping based on such factors as race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identification, disability, ethnicity, immigration status, occupation, and religion must be eliminated.
(we hear those words being spewed by the communist democrat party the mainstream media each and every day the drum beats)
B-24. Education of Refugee and Undocumented Children and Children of Undocumented Immigrants. The Association supports access for undocumented students to financial aid and in-state tuition to state colleges and universities. The Association further believes that students who have resided in the United States for at least five years at the time of high school graduation should be granted legal residency status, and allowed to apply for U.S. citizenship.
(The NEA supports illegal aliens, no borders why you ask, simple more students with backing from the Communist Democrat party mandates to educate them means more money for the NEA its union and union members…)
B-30. Educational Programs for English Language Learners. The Association believes that ELL students should be placed in bilingual education programs to receive instruction in their native language from qualified teachers until such time as English proficiency is achieved.
B-39. Multicultural Education. The National Education Association believes that Multicultural education should promote the recognition of individual and group differences and similarities in order to reduce racism, homophobia, ethnic and all other forms of prejudice, and discrimination and to develop self-esteem.
B-40. Global Education. The National Education Association believes that global education imparts an appreciation of our interdependency in sharing the world’s resources.
B-48. Family Life Education. The Association believes that programs should be established for both students and parents/guardians and supported at all educational levels to promote —
- The development of self-esteem
- An understanding of societal issues and problems related to children, spouses, parents/guardians, domestic partners, older generation family members, and other family members.
The Association also believes that education in these areas must be presented as part of an antibiased, culturally sensitive program.
B-49. Environmental Education. The Association supports educational programs
that they promote —
- An awareness of the effects of past, present, and future population growth patterns on world civilization, human survival, and the environment
- Solutions to environmental problems such as nonrenewable resource depletion, pollution, global warming, ozone depletion, and acid precipitation and deposition
- The recognition of and participation in such activities as Earth Day.
B-51. Sex Education. The Association recognizes that the public school must assume an increasingly important role in providing the instruction. The Association also believes that to facilitate the realization of human potential, it is the right of every individual to live in an environment of freely available information and knowledge about sexuality and encourages affiliates and members to support appropriately established sex education programs. Such programs should include information on sexual abstinence, birth control, family planning, diversity of culture and diversity of sexual orientation and gender identification, sexually transmitted diseases, incest, sexual abuse, sexual harassment, and homophobia.
B-82. Home Schooling. The National Education Association believes that home schooling programs based on parental choice cannot provide the student with a comprehensive education experience. When home schooling occurs, students enrolled must meet all state curricular requirements, including the taking and passing of assessments to ensure adequate academic progress.
The Association also believes that home-schooled students should not participate in any extracurricular activities in the public schools.
(The NEA wants no part of Home Schooling, it undercuts the NEA mission to indoctrinate our children, it undercuts their influence on the community and reduces public school enrollment and that folks means less money in the pockets of these change agents)
C-16. Extremist Groups. The National Education Association condemns the philosophy and practices of extremist groups and urges active opposition to all such movements that are inimical to the ideals of the Association.
C-25. Comprehensive School Health, Social, and Psychological Programs and Services. The National Education Association believes that every child should have direct and confidential access to comprehensive health, social, and psychological programs and services. The Association believes that schools should provide —
- A planned, sequential health education curriculum for pre-K through adult education that integrates various health topics (such as drug abuse, the dangers of performance-enhancing dietary herbal supplements, violence, safety issues, universal precautions, and HIV education)
- Counseling programs that provide developmental guidance and broad-based interventions and referrals
- Comprehensive school-based, community-funded student health care clinics that provide basic physical and mental health, and health care services (which may include diagnosis and treatment)
- If deemed appropriate by local choice, family-planning counseling and access to birth control methods with instruction in their use.
(PUBLIC SCHOOLS are no longer centers of education they are family planning , mental health clinics, health services, anything but education)
C-26. School Guidance and Counseling Programs. The National Education Association believes that guidance and counseling programs should be integrated into the entire education system, pre-K through higher education.
(school guidance and counseling programs-nothing more than promoting college a must for everyone, mental health counseling. Or put it this way another tool to influence and indoctrinate your child into the world of SOCIALISM}
C-31. Student Sexual Orientation and Gender Identification. The National Education Association believes that all persons, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification, should be afforded equal opportunity and guaranteed a safe and inclusive environment within the public education system. The Association also
believes that, for students who are struggling with their sexual orientation or gender identification, every school district and educational institution should provide counseling services and programs that deal with high suicide and dropout rates and the high incidence of teen prostitution.
(SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTIFICATION-THIS IS A BIGGIE, the public school systems pushes HOMOSEXUALITY hell our children are being taught there is more than two genders maybe as many as 50 plus! Sexual Orientation really being pushed the left know they have control of our children and whatever our children are being taught at home —-well once they walk into the school house it’s all over. To put it bluntly THE NEA IS CORRUPTING YOUR CHILDREN)
E-3. Selection and Challenges of Materials and Teaching Techniques. The Association deplores prepublishing censorship, book-burning crusades, and attempts to ban books from school library media centers and school curricula.
F-2. Pay Equity/Comparable Worth. The “market value” means of establishing pay cannot be the final determinant of pay scales since it too frequently reflects the race and sex bias in our society.
H-1. The Education Employee as a Citizen. The Association urges its members to become politically involved and to support the political action committees of the Association and its affiliates.
(THE NEA SUPPORTS THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT PARTY-MORE CONTRIBUTE TO THAT PARTY THAN ANYOTHER, TO THE TUNE OF ALMOST 94% OF ALL CONTRIBUTIONS GO TO THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT PARTY)
H-7. National Health Care Policy. The National Education Association believes that affordable, comprehensive health care, including prescription drug coverage, is the right of every resident. The Association supports the adoption of a single-payer health care plan for all residents of the United States, its territories, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
(WANT TO KNOW WHO SUPPORTS AND TEACHES OUR CHILDREN TO SUPPORT A NATIONAL HEALTH CARE POLICY, DO AWAY WITH HEALTH INSURANCE AND
ACCEPT GOVERNMENT’S COMPLETE CONTROL OF OUR HEALTH CARE–IT’S THE NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION -YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK)
H-11. Statehood for the District of Columbia. The Association supports efforts to achieve statehood for the District of Columbia.
I-1. Peace and International Relations. The Association urges all nations to develop treaties and disarmament agreements that reduce the possibility of war. The Association also believes that such treaties and agreements should prevent the placement of weapons in outer space. The Association believes that the United Nations furthers world peace and promotes the rights of all people by preventing war, racism, and genocide.
I-2. International Court of Justice. The Association urges participation by the United States in deliberations before the court.
I-3. International Criminal Court. The Association believes that the United States should ratify the Rome Statute of the Internat
