NEA Delegates Take Aim At Corporate Partnerships


Liana Heitin writes at the Education Week (7/7) “Teacher Beat” blog about a package of New Business Items addressed by National Education Association delegates at the union’s annual conference in Denver which appear to be designed to examine partnerships with such corporate entities as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Though the items were eventually “taken off the table,” they indicate “a more strident tone on partnerships, and will be a theme to watch.”
