NEA endorses Biden for president

Ahead of the Sunday debate, Joe Biden’s campaign got a major boost with the endorsement by the National Education Association (NEA), the nation’s largest union. Lily Eskelsen Garcia, the president of the 3-million member NEA, cited Biden’s support for public education and his plans to boost teacher pay and make schooling more available.

Public Education is just daycare but with homework. There is too much administrative overlook, for every teacher there are two assistant principals. It's assembly line education that is meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator. To get an endorsement from the person that represents that whole huge mess of an institution is not a benefit in my opinion. Also, consider the following: Public Unions often contribute to slush funds for laundering money, always have been and always will be, and every single mattress store and laundromat are just fronts for the mafia.

Maybe it's irrelevant, maybe it's a misquote but it's noticeable how "teachers pay" was the first reason stated 😀. Must be embarrassing if yo''re a Dem though, seriously.

Unpopular opinion...teachers don’t deserve more pay and education shouldn’t be funneled more tax dollars for a myriad of reasons... Like seriously think about it. in your entire life from as early as you can remember to your senior year, how many teachers have you had that were good at their jobs, effective at teaching, and had a lasting positive impact on your life. My anecdotal awnser is maybe 1 and debatably 2 teachers, all in my senior year. Every single other teacher was a worksheet distributor. Those odds are approximately 1 or 2 out of 50. Public education is broken and needs to change or be removed and replaced

So, the Dem goal IS to make kids as dumb and submissive as possible. Maybe the kids can all be president in 1972 also!! Yeah!

National Union proves it is as corrupt as the problem.... A vote for Biden is the same as a vote for Trump.....

It seems like the NEA is more concerned with teacher pay, rather than educating the youth. If they actually cared about education, they wouldn't even come close to endorsing anyone behind Common Core.

Joe Biden winning endorsement over Sanders is matter of numbers at this point. better to endorse the guy that's most likely going to be the winner of the primaries.
