I am appalled that NEA and my home affiliate OEA have abandoned their members and sold out to ed reformers on the CC standards! Thousands of teachers DO NOT agree with NEA's view on CC and see it for what it really is. CC is a money maker for Bill Gates, Pearson and obviously NEA! Many of the CC standards are not developmentally appropriate in many grade levels and this would have been pointed out if teachers had been included in the writing of the standards. Foe NEA to now put out propaganda like this in order to save face is simply nauseating to so many members. Maybe NEA had better think about the huge loss of membership that will result form them not listening to the cries of their members.
