It should be noted that BAT is not attempting to oppose the NEA, but to get the NEA leadership to listen to teacher concerns and stand united behind those issues.
What issues am I referring to?
- Opposition to the common core
- Vocal support for teachers to be treated as professionals
- Discontinue cooperation with corporations that undermine public education (ie Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Pearson, ALEC et al)
