National Education Assn: Annual Convention
By A. M. Johnson


June 20, 2006

Dear Editor,

Came across an interesting happening that will affect our community public schools. The following information may have tremulous effect on individuals with children attending public schools. To parents it might be a moral issue, value issue, or just plain offensive that their child's teacher could/would/may support such endorsement of which the parents not being aware. To others is is "experiencing the class room" and acceptable.


"The National Education Association is set to endorse homosexual marriage at their convention coming up in Orlando June 29 through July 6.

The new NEA proposal essentially says schools should support and actively promote homosexual marriage and other forms of marriage (two men and one woman, three women, two women and three men, etc.) in their local schools.

The new proposal, expected to pass overwhelmingly, is found under the B-8 Diversity paragraph:

The Association... believes in the importance of observances, programs and curricula that accurately portray and recognize the roles, contributions, cultures, and history of these diverse groups and individuals.

The Association believes that legal rights and responsibilities with regard to medical decisions, taxes, inheritance, adoption, legal immigration, domestic partnerships, and civil unions and/or marriage belong to all these diverse groups and individuals."

Now you know. You decide, I have. Would I have a school age child or grandchild he or she would be enrolled in a local private school.
