NEA Convention coverage

The 4th of July means a lot of things to different people. To the NEA it means convention time. No better coverage available than from our man on site Mike Antonucci of the Education Intelligence Agency.

Day Zero coverage can be found here, and this year, for the first time I can recall, there are pictures!

Here's the NEA's website for the Representative Assembly.

The resolutions, which always contain controversial, non-education specific items, seem to be unavailable online at this moment. I think that's normal as they hash out at the last minute what to actually present to the assembly attendees.

UPDATE: Mike updates the day's activities.

"For 2007-08, 11 state affiliates will receive media money from NEA: Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas."

Best Quote: "I also discovered that NEA spent some of its media campaign fund money placing print ads in NASCAR event programs. It would make more sense to sponsor the pace car - ensuring that everyone moves at the same slow speed."

Happy 4th of July everyone. If you haven’t in recently read the Declaration of Independence recently I’d like to invite you all to take a few moments on the 4th to read it. You can download a printable copy at I hope we all can take a moment and think of what those word’s that started it all mean to us personally.
