Waiting for Obama

| 1 Comment

It's official: Becky Pringle will serve as the NEA's secretary-treasurer for the next year, filling out the remainder of Lily Eskelsen's term when Eskelsen becomes vice president.

Pringle, a former member of the NEA executive committee from Pennsylvania, beat out contender Marsha Smith, a member of the NEA executive committee from Maryland, with more than 80 percent of the vote. Among other things, Pringle now gets to do the fun job of preparing the union's financial report each year.

The RA adjourned early for the Fourth of July, and officials postponed announcement on the outcome of a vote on admitting private school workers to the NEA.

Nearly 80 percent of the members also voted today to elect Barack Obama as president. Obama will address the RA tomorrow at 10:15 a.m. in a live satellite feed from Montana. The union has had some integral differences with the presidential candidate in the past. He spoke last year in favor of performance pay, which is anathema to the union, and has voiced some positive thoughts on charter schools. The question is, will he change his tune now that the 3.2 million- member union is throwing its might behind him?

We are not holding our breaths.

Feel really sorry for such candid thoughts when one sees what's going on the elections scene:the Dem-Rep theatrical show to deceive the common man and further the elite's corporate goals of power-grabbing and money-stealing.
I feel sorry to see educators failing in their mission to take a stand clear of
partizan politics when knowing that humanity as whole is suffering from the
agenda drawn by the behind the scene occult cartels and foreign lobbies.
Echoeing the official party's propraganda puts you dear Vaishali in
the accused box as accomplice of the
mass deceit operated by the elections,
which is conducted every 5 years by those same people who bring calamity
to the entire world.
If feeling dizzy by your current medecine why not consult a another
doc ? I have an address you should visit,the cure has been tested 100% because based on awakening of consciousness and on head-banging
with facts :"http://www.fas.org/".
