Teachers union promotes Alinsky radicals guide to revolution

August 6, 2010 12:38

The NEA teachers union is one of the worst offenders when it comes to promoting the ‘progressive‘ agenda. It Advocates leftist positions on a host of issues, including abortion, sex education, teen pregnancy, school prayer, socialized medicine, affordable housing, drug testing, prisoner rights, bilingual education, global warming, and health care. And now they are pushing a radical leftist guide to revolution on their web site.

The teachers unions have been very aggressive in blocking spending cuts at state and local levels even in states bordering on financial collapse like California. The NEA is the

largest labor union and is the eighth largest contributor of campaign money to congress. 91% of the donations go to Democrats.

According to RiShawn Biddle in a Capital Research Center report:

‘The NEA took in an estimated $569 million that it spent on local, state and national political campaigns during the 2007-2008 election cycle, according to the National Institute on Money in State Politics. This made the NEA the nation’s single-biggest campaign contributor for the 2009-2010 election period, the NEA has raised another $15 million to date – double the amount raised at the same time two years ago. This fundraising prowess is why Harvard University education scholar Paul Peterson declares that the NEA is “in a position to tell state legislatures what to do.”’

The NEA web site says “NEA recommends the following Saul Alinsky books to those members of our Association who are involved in grassroots organizing, especially Association Representatives (ARs) also known as building reps or shop stewards and leaders at local affiliates.”

Why would a teachers union recommend a radical socialist’s book that is a guide to overthrowing capitalism and turning America into a socialist state? Why would a teachers union recommend a radical socialist’s book that is dedicated to the ‘original radical’ Lucifer?

We have to look at the creation of the NEA and its purpose. It should come as no surprise that it has nothing to do with bettering the education of your children. Although the stated goals of the NEA make it seem like a defender of educational rights, the actions of the NEA show that the ‘education’ they want to promote is more of a leftist indoctrination.

According to Discover the Networks (which you should read in its entirety):

“The NEA was founded in 1850 as the National Teachers Association, and adopted its present name in 1857. Promoting government-owned public schools and “modern” pedagogical ideas, this union permitted no private school teachers to join its ranks. These government-owned-and-run schools were modeled on statist European education in Prussia, and attracted socialist activist teachers who saw public school students as perfect subjects for re-engineering society. That remolding began with the anti-Catholic objectives of Horace Mann (1796-1859) and expanded to the anti-religious humanism of John Dewey (1859-1952).”

And this from Chronology of the NEA (which you should read in its entirety):

“From the beginning, they were determined to destroy the old education system in order to build the collective world of their dreams. Reporting to the annual NEA meeting in 1935, Willard Givens (soon-to-be executive secretary) wrote: “…many drastic changes must be made…. A dying ‘laissez-faire’ must be completely destroyed and all of us, including the ‘owners’, must be subjected to a large degree of social control…. The major function of the school is the social orientation of the individual. It must seek to give him understanding of the transition to a new social order.”  Samuel Blumenfeld.”

From the beginning the NEA has sought to ‘re -engineer’ society through the indoctrination of a generation of students. Its working. While their real abilities in English, math and science have declined despite ever increasing amounts of taxpayer dollars, the push for leftists goals of a false ‘self esteem’ are succeeding in creating people who feel good about their inadequacy of education.

From Discover the Networks:

‘The NEA’s explicitly stated quest to “foster positive self-esteem” in schoolchildren continues to this day. In his book Inside American Education, Thomas Sowell observes: “Perhaps nothing so captures what is wrong with American schools as the results of an international study of 13-year-olds which found that Koreans ranked first in mathematics and Americans last. When asked if they thought they were ‘good at mathematics,’ only 23 percent of Korean youngsters said ‘yes’ — compared to 68 percent of American 13-year-olds. The American educational dogma that students should ‘feel good about themselves’ was a success in its own terms — though not in any other terms.”’

A big part of the agenda of the NEA is to remove Christianity from the schools and from the students themselves as the Chronology of the NEA points out:

‘Their goals and tactics haven’t changed. Take religion. Back in 1933, John Dewey co-authored the first Humanist Manifesto which called for a new world religion: “…a synthesizing and dynamic force for today must be shaped for the needs of this age. To establish such a religion is a major necessity of the present.”

They have come a long way. Today, Christianity is banned from our government schools. Instead, students are immersed in the new global spirituality — a contemporary, idealistic blend of all religions — through classroom myths, rituals, symbols and multicultural experiences. This new spiritual synthesis has been adapted to fit the amoral, religious standards outlined by UNESCO’s Declaration on the role of religion in a culture of peace and Declaration of Principles on Tolerance.’

Christianity has been successfully drummed out of most public schools which has led to the rise in home schooling and private Christian schools. My own daughter was chastised and made fun of by her teacher and fellow students in a high school advanced placement class for her attendance at a local church.

Even more disturbing may be the NEA’s promotion of and adherence to the UN programs such as UNESCO. Chronology of the NEA points out:

‘Keep in mind, the NEA shares the UN goals on every point. Small wonder, since its leaders helped establish the United Nations in the first place. Back in 1946, it celebrated the formation of UNESCO as “the culmination of a movement for the creation of an international agency of education.” What the NEA had begun in secret would now be officially established by this new global management system. The NEA Journal announced the victory: “each member nation… has a duty to see to it that nothing in its curriculum… is contrary to UNESCO’s aims.”

The same year, a NEA-sponsored world conference drafted a Constitution for a World Organization of the Teaching Profession. It would be “a mighty force in aiding UNESCO,” said William Carr, associate secretary of NEA’s Education Policies Commission.

Indeed, it would. Like the UN, the NEA promotes abortion, disarmament, world government and everything outlined in Local Agenda 21, the radical framework for a totalitarian globalism under the banner of “Saving the Earth.”‘

So there you have it. Its makes perfect sense now that the National Education Association (teachers union) would promote books by a radical Marxist who wants to overthrow the government and replace it with socialism. It also makes sense that 91% of the NEA campaign contributions go to socialist Democrats. And it makes sense that Nancy Pelosi  is calling the House back into special session to pass one bill to send $26 billion to states and cities with failed leftist policies, $10 billion of which is earmarked for ‘saving’ teachers’ jobs.
