Making the Case for Public Education
Black Issues in Higher Education, v20 n25 p22 Jan 2004
Founded in 1857 "to elevate the character and advance the interests of the profession of teaching and to promote the cause of education in the United States," the National Education Association has a long history of fighting for the rights of educators across the nation. That type of activism continues today as the challenges facing educators at all levels continue to mount. Black Issues sat down with NEA President Reginald Weaver to address pressing educational issues including assessment, vouchers, funding for the No Child Left Behind Act, parental responsibility in the education of their children and to suggest possible improvements. This article provides a brief transcript of the discussion.
