The pages on the website for the largest insegnanti union in the stati Uniti were visible as recently as Tuesday morning, a few days after the conclusion of the NEA’s 2021 Riunione annuale e Assemblea rappresentativa.
The pages provided the status of resolutions proposed to the assembly by delegates nationwide, including whether they were defeated, passed or referred to a committee.
News organizations and activists watching the affairs of the highly-influential teachers union used the pages to keep track of the resolutions.
One resolution that disappeared from the NEA’s site was New Business Item 39, which conveyed the NEA’s desire to “fight back against anti-CRT rhetoric.” That resolution passed.
Another resolution that passed – New Business Item 2 – said the “NEA will research the organizations attacking educators doing anti-racist work and/or use the research already done and put together a list of resources and recommendations for state affiliates, locals, and individual educators to utilize when they are attacked.”
Not all of the resolutions which were on the NEA’s website and were removed passed. New Business Item 33, proposed by a delegate from Oakland, California, pushed for the NEA to call for mandatory vaccination, mask-wearing, and social distancing in schools. It was defeated but reflects the sentiment among some that in-person instruction for students in the fall could be in jeopardy without significant pandemic health measures.
“3 days after their annual meeting concludes, @NEAToday, the nation’s largest teacher’s union, scrubs the agenda items announcing their nationwide campaign to push CRT from their website,” Jessica Anderson, the president of Heritage Action, ha detto martedì. Heritage is one of the national groups pushing back against CRT and was specifically targeted by New Business Item 2.
“Why are they covering up their support for CRT?” Anderson ha aggiunto.
The NEA did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News asking for an explanation about why the resolution pages are no longer on its website. It also did not immediately respond to a question about whether the resolutions are or will be made publicly available elsewhere.
