The NEA is leading the way in education reform especially among its represented districts. On the National Education Associations (NEA) web page "Great Ideas for Great Public Schools" is the following statement: "We created this web page to highlight some of the extraordinary school transformation work being accomplished by NEA members and affiliates. These examples of successful innovations demonstrate how we are working in collaboration with other stakeholders to benefit students and the teaching profession" I Reviewed the current "NEA Resolutions". The scope of their reforms are very broad based and detailed. They cover most areas of human activity. With over 3.2 million teachers, and the vast majority of districts, isn't the NEA the only real reform effort in the Public K12 schools that can make any meaningful progress? Noting that the NEA provides the duel role of being the representing union for the teachers and their education association, isn't it important that all teachers stand together for these reforms? How do other reform efforts cooperate with the NEA even though they may have different ideas about what reform is and how it should be implemented?
