The National Education Association approved a new “business item” expressing support for abortion access during its annual conference in Houston.“[T]he NEA will include an assertion of our defense of a person’s right to control their own body, especially for women, youth, and sexually marginalized people,” the resolution states. “The NEA vigorously opposes all attacks on the right to choose and stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade.”The NEA is the largest teachers’ union in the U.S. with more than 3 million members. It collected nearly $400 million from American educators in 2018, according to federal labor filings. The union is also one of the most politically active in the country, spending $70 million on politics and lobbying in 2017 and 2018.Nearly all of the union’s political action committee spending went to Democrats during the midterm cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

The NEA goes all in on abortion
What does supporting abortion rights have to do good schools or teachers? The answer is nothing, except if you agree that the NEA is no more than a cash register for the Democrat Party.
The NEA announced this:
Again, this is a union interested in promoting the modern Democrat Party rather than the education of kids. It opposes reforms, such as school choice, and supports reproductive rights, a fancy way of saying “abortion.”
Moral of the story: The bureaucrats running our schools are committed left-wing activists. Therefore, don’t be surprised if more families take their kids out of public schools and “home-school” them.
