The question, What does the NEA plan for children in the Fall? begs the question, Why would the NEA have ANYTHING planned for children in the Fall. The NEA is a union that is supposed to represent teachers. The chartered purpose of the NEA according to 36 U.S.C. 1511 is:
- to elevate the character and advance the interests of professional teaching
- to promote the cause of education in the United States
There is nothing in those two statements that indicate their purpose is to bring sexuality into the classrooms nor do they have any business providing materials for the classroom and training teachers, administrators to implement programs pertaining to sexuality.
The following is an excerpt from Page 7 (adobe) of the NEA’s Reports on Implementation of Actions of the 2018 Representative Assembly.
Emphasis added –
11. Gender Inclusive Schools
NEA shall, using existing digital media, have all state and local affiliates encourage K-12 teachers to view a series of films called Creating Gender Inclusive Schools and use the accompanying study guides of the Youth and Gender Media Project (visit youthandgendermediaproject.org) to create inclusive communities for all youth, regardless of where they fall on the spectrum of gender identity and expression (2018-11).
Completed (Assigned to Center for Social Justice)
Resources and information were promoted and made available to state and local affiliates and members through the February 2019 distribution of the electronic Center for Social Justice Quarterly Update. This Update contained a link to the Film Series
‘Creating Gender Inclusive Schools
and to the Resource Study Guide
The Quarterly Newsletter is sent to national, state and local leadership for distribution to members.

In the Report, NEA Resolutions: Summary of Winter Committee Actions for 2018-2019, the NEA lists their full body of resolutions along with new and proposed amendments to existing resolutions. While an amendment to an existing resolution pertaining to the LGBTQ political agenda captured our attention, the entire report is a shocking exposé of the degree to which the radical left has taken control over our schools and clearly they are indoctrinating the children. How did this happen? How is it that these people have been allowed to bring their political agendas into our K-12 schools?
The following is the particular amendment that captured our attention initially but our concerns go far beyond that amendment.
Bold italic indicates proposed new copy.
[Bold brackets] indicate proposed deleted copy.
The following is an amendment to resolution B31:
B-31. Educational Programs in Support of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Non-Binary, and Questioning Students
The National Education Association supports appropriate and inclusive educational programs that address the unique needs and concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, and questioning (LGBTQ+) students. The Association also supports efforts and contributions by educators, parents/guardians, community leaders, organizations, and partners in the development of these programs. Specific programs should provide—
a. Acknowledgement of the significant contributions of diverse LGBTQ+ persons in American history and culture
b. Involvement of educators knowledgeable in LGBTQ+ issues in the development of educational materials that integrate factual information about the history, social movements, and current events of LGBTQ+ people
c. Developmentally appropriate local, state, and national resources. (2015)
This agenda is not education and that’s the nicest thing this writer can say about it other than that we’re going to put a stop to it.
