@NCAE To Join Occupy Monday’s “Day of Action”

Just what does the NCAE do with teacher dues? Join ‘days of action’ with far Left groups who get media attention by getting arrested maybe? This letter from the NCAE below looks like political activity, not teacher advocacy. In fact, that’s exactly what it is only Larry calls it “education activism”.

Workshops and skills training? Like what? Chanting and holding signs? Learning how to alienate more and more parents with vitriolic antics?

Hey, at least this time they aren’t pulling a day of action in our schools right? Shocked they sent this instead of their protest arm, Organize2020.

Be There When Legislators Return for the Short Session
Dear Alice,
    
From Moral Mondays to the November 4th Walk-Ins and Decline to Sign to the We [Heart] Public Schools Campaign, this has been the year of educator activism in North Carolina.Our schools are facing unprecedented attacks and our communities have responded with unprecedented energy.
The North Carolina Association of Educators is on the move. Now, on the eve of the General Assembly’s short session, it’s time to double down on public education activism!
Join us in Raleigh on the first day of the General Assembly short session to assert our demands and let legislators know that we will keep organizing and fighting–for our students, our schools, ourselves, and our communities–until we win.
On May 14, take a personal day and join us for the following activities:
  • 8:00a to 12:00p: Vigil and Office Visits at the General Assembly (16 W. Jones St.)
  • 1:00 to 3:30: Workshops and skills training at NCAE HQ (700 S. Salisbury St.)
  • 4:00 to 5:30: Rally and action beginning at the NCAE HQ
Members can park for free at the NCAE building and everyone should wear their “We [Heart] Public Schools” shirt. (These shirts will also be available for purchase on May 14.)
This is a community-wide effort.  Invite your friends, family, and coworkers to join us. And if you can’t make it for the full day, join us as soon as you can. You–and your students–will be glad you did.
 
As always, let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for everything,
