National Education Association
The National Education Association is a American labor union with strong Leftist leanings. Membership is mandatory for teachers and administrators at most public schools. It is not so much a professional organization as a lobbying group.
Its headquarters are in Washington, D.C. It originated in 1857 as the National Teachers Association, which merged in 1870 with the National Education Association.
The NEA demands a tax-supported single-payer health-care plan Socialized Medicine for all residents. The NEA supports immigration "reform" that includes a path to permanent residency, citizenship, or asylum for illegal aliens.
