    Re: Do Kansans hate NEA?
    sue

    I'm not sure what your son heard on the radio, but I think
    KS-NEA is a strong supportive group. I belonged for many
    years and am now a Retired KNEA/NEA member. I continue my
    membership because I think it is a strong group that unifies
    the needs of teachers and students.

    Maybe you'd want to visit the knea.org website and explore
    for yourself.
