I just saw on the news a bit ago that the NEA is endorsing Obama for 2012. Since the WVEA has the NEA as its lead affiliate, I just called my board of ed. payroll clerk and cancelled my membership.

Don't forget George W. Bush and NCLB And George W. Bush was the one who brought in NCLB. Sold that bill of goods based on his wonderful educational plan in Texas. Great success.......Not.
