National Education Assn:
By A. M. Johnson

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
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.
