    Wayne,

    We will be running this editorial in the local news paper please give us your input.

    God Bless,

    What would you think of an organization that gave away more than $65 million dollars to Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow push coalition, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, Amnesty International, Aids walk Washington and other such advocacy groups, you would probably assume we were describing a liberal advocacy group.

    In fact, according to the Wall Street Journal editorial, “those expenditures all turned up on the finance disclose report for the National Education Association.” (NEA)

    Under federal laws passed during the Bush administration large unions must now disclose in much more detail how they spend members’ dues money. Needless to say Big Labor fought hard against the new accountability standards.

    Now Big Labor, The National Education Association is muscling in on Idaho to stop meaningful reform, not because they think it is harmful to students, on the contrary reform will be most beneficial in putting school boards and parents back in control of their schools and bring our children into the 21st century.

    Propositions 1,2,& 3 strip the unions of their funding source your tax payer dollars and puts them back were they belong in the classrooms with students and teaches. Do we really need to spend your hard earned dollars on such organizations as mentioned above? What does support for such organization have to do with educating out children?

    Go to idahofreedomfoundation.org and get the facts. Do not be fooled by the NEA and their scare tactics.
