5th Kansas District Leaves Teachers Union

Associated Press - January 24, 2014 10:15 am

Teachers in a southwest Kansas school district have joined teachers in four other districts in leaving the state’s main teachers union.

Teachers in Spearville, which is near Dodge City, voted on Wednesday to leave the Kansas National Education Association. They will join the Association of American Educators, which provides services but does not bargain for teacher contracts.

The other districts that have decertified in the past year are Deerfield, Caldwell, Vermillion and Rolla.

The Kansas State Department of Education website says Spearville employs about 30 teachers. The five districts that decertified employ about 145 teachers.

The KNEA says it still has about 25,000 members in Kansas. The Kansas affiliate of the AAE says it has about 1,300 members.

A casual checking in on the NEA website should convince any parent not to have their child educated by an NEA member.
Their suggested books to read range anywhere from “Rules for Radicals” by Alinski to “instructive” books written by bho’s education czar on illicit relationships between teachers and students. They fight to keep perverts’ jobs while doing nothing to improve the quality of education.
