To quote the old Mercedes Benz airbag commercial: "Some things in life are too important not to share."
The National Education Association's national convention begins today at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. Outside, the Evergreen Freedom Foundation (a Washington State think tank) is parking a truck with a billboard highlighting some of the expenditures the NEA listed on its 2004 federal financial disclosure forms.
The billboard is too important (and good) not to share:
You can read about the case Evergreen is making against the NEA (both in the court of public opinion and soon the U.S. Supreme Court) here and see some of the truck's other displays here.
If teachers gain the freedom to decide how their own paychecks are spent, it will in no small part be due to the folks at Evergreen.
