The Colorado Education Association, carrying the state’s largest anti-reform-in-education banner for years, has bestowed on me high honors. The new October-November 2006 edition of CEA Journal included yours truly, the proprietor of this blog, in a select group as “[one] of the most virulent *anti-public education individuals in the state.” Incidentally, this appeared in the same issue where union officials also endorsed an astonishing (gasp!) 73 Democrat candidates vs. 6 Republican candidates – oh so clearly not reflecting the political affiliations of their rank-and-file membership.
The badge of honor has now assumed a permanent place at the top of the page. I believe I now can say I’ve truly made my parents proud, and my life’s work has not been in vain.
* “anti-public education” = CEA code speak for anyone who disagrees with their agenda
Update: I scanned and uploaded the page in question as a PDF, so living proof is here. It’s easy to find … just go to the last paragraph in the far right column to view it for yourself.
