At the National Education Association (NEA) meeting in Florida, delegates passed a measure in response to the alleged “prevalence of discrimination and violence targeted” at the LGBTQ community to the tune of $580,000, nearly half of the $1.2 million delegates allocated to new business at the meeting.
The NEA's goal is to provide resources to local members to fight legislation and policies from state legislatures and school boards that could potentially impact the LGBTQ community.
The measure, which is in place for the next year, calls for the union to:
One member, George Kemery, a high school English teacher in Voorhees Township, N.J., even recommended making the language used in contracts more inclusive to the LGBTQ+ community by including the terms “birthing parent” and “non-birthing parent” in addition to “mother” and “father” on employment contracts.
The NEA also promised it would continue to promote "banned books" that contain sexually-explicit images and content for children, glorify the use of pornography, and normalize transgenderism. The union even promoted a book that features a chapter on incestuous statutory rape in a massive banner flown at the rally (see screenshot below where "All Boys Aren't Blue" is a featured book).
Have you ever wondered why it is so important for a teachers union to promote sexually-explicit images, pornography and transgenderism to children? Isn't there a term that describes the kind of people who normalize content like this to children?
