Roundup of NEA Action So Far

If you're just joining us at the 2009 National Education Association Representative Assembly, Teacher Beat has been blogging all weekend. Here's a roundup of items you may be interested in checking out:

Van Roekel and the Media: Not entirely warm and fuzzy. Yet.

ESEA Committee Gives Report: Followed by some pointed comments by Van Roekel on the federal law.

Charters a Theme: In the wake of the Race to the Top funding, there's been a flurry of NEA action on charters.

Van Roekel's Keynote: He uses the words "labor movement" and "union" ... a LOT.

T-Shirt Madness: Those fashionable NEA folks deck themselves out.

Duncan's Speech: Not particularly new news, despite what you may have read.

But there's much more to come this afternoon, as I post details about an interview with the head of NEA's Committee on ESEA, and chat with the man of the hour himself, Dennis Van Roekel. So stay tuned!
