Anti Free Speech, Not Anti Corruption
The nerve of those outside our state who wish to determine what we can and cannot do is astonishing! Delegates to this year's annual meeting of NEA-Alaska voted to take a firm stand on the initiative that will appear on the primary ballot in August. The item is titled "Anti- Corruption" but is really an attempt to limit the ability of Alaskans to speak their minds. It will block individuals as well as organizations from political activity. This language has been peddled around the country and funded by a millionaire in New York. If this person has so much money to put into this type of effort, perhaps he would be willing to spend some of that wealth in helping our students! I stand ready to make suggestions as to how we can improve public education in our state and country.
