The Danger of the NEA
Did you know the National Education Association is the largest union in the nation and welds power over all the public school districts in the nation? They intimidate conservative public school teachers into silence. They are very much on board with the LGBTQA movement and Planned Parenthood. Here are some New Business Items that were passed during their 2018 conference:
NEA will promote the Black Lives Matter Week of Action in schools during Black History month in 2019, using existing communication resources, specifically calling for clear efforts to demonstrate support for the three demands of the BLM Week of Action in schools:
- Ending zero-tolerance policies and replacing them with restorative justice practices.
- Hiring and mentoring Black educators.
- Mandating that ethnic studies be taught in preK-12 schools in age-appropriate ways.
NEA shall, using existing digital media, have all state and local affiliates encourage K-12 teachers to view a series of films called Creating Gender Inclusive Schools and use the accompanying study guides of the Youth and Gender Media Project (visit youthandgendermediaproject.org) to create inclusive communities for all youth, regardless of where they fall on the spectrum of gender identity and expression.
Adopted As Modified
NEA shall, using existing digital media, post a list of known individuals with businesses who are committed to refusing services to same-sex couples and/or LGBTQ individuals. NEA can access a list of these individuals and their businesses from organizations such as THINKPROGRESS (thinkprogress.org), Southern Poverty Law Center, and Human Rights Campaign, and share it with all state and local affiliates on nea.org.
Adopted As Amended
NEA will use existing publications to salute the bravery of the many individuals who have come forward in the #MeToo movement and declare our solidarity with the struggle against sexual assault.
NEA shall, using existing digital media, encourage state and local affiliates to make available a practice brief to families, caretakers, advocates, and providers that provides new research from the Family Acceptance Project (FAP) at San Francisco State University in support of their lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning+ (LGBTQ+) children.
NEA will contact equalrightsamendment.org and have NEA added to the list of organizations supporting the Equal Rights Amendment as it is published on the website.
NEA will work with partner organizations to ensure individuals living within the U.S. and its respective territories be counted in the U.S. Census regardless of their citizenship status and ensure that it is done in a manner that does not endanger members.
Adopted As Modified
Using existing resources, NEA will release a public statement in opposition to conversion therapy, repairative (sic) therapy, reorientation, or any other process to alter a student’s orientation or identity.
You get the idea!!

- Pray for conservative Christian public school teachers who are doing their job every day for the students, not for a teachers’ union or to push an agenda.
- Listen to my interview with Greg Quinlan, President of Center for Garden State Families and his first-hand account of the 2018 NEA Convention. Read their report on the convention here
- Pray for the public school students who are directly impacted by the NEA’s progressive agenda.
