I was wondering if you’d heard about the unfortunate remark Secretary of Education Rod Paige recently made about the NEA? Sec. Paige referred to the NEA a “terrorist organization” at a White House meeting of state governors a few weeks ago. I was pretty shocked that Paige would go that far and use that type of language :!: :!:
The organization I work for, GiveKidsGoodSchools.com, is concerned that Paige’s words indicate a lack of respect for America’s educators so we’re running a letter writing campaign to ask Secretary Paige to foster a spirit of cooperation and respect with America’s educators and the groups like the NEA that serve them. I was wondering if you’d help us spread the word about this.
Here is the link to the page on our web site that allows people to send a free letter to Rod Paige.
GiveKidsGoodSchools.com is a nonprofit advocacy group dedicated to improving the quality of public education for America’s kids.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Here are a few links to some news coverage of the Secretary’s remarks:
