"In 1936, the National Education Association stated its position, from which they have never wavered; "We stand for socializing the individual."
The NEA in its "Policy For American Education" stated,
"The major problem of education in our times arises out of the fact that we live in a period of fundamental social change. In the new democracy [we were a Republic] education must share in the responsibility of giving purpose and direction to social change. The major function of the school is the social orientation of the individual. Education must operate according to a well-formulated social policy."
Paul Haubner, specialist for the NEA, tells us,
"The schools cannot allow parents to influence the kind of values-education their children receive in school; that is what is wrong with those who say there is a universal system of values. Our goals are incompatible with theirs. We must change their values."
"Education for international understanding involves the use of education as a force for conditioning the will of the people." – National Education Association, Education for International Understanding in American Schools, page 33 (1948)
"Schools will become clinics whose purpose is to provide individualized, psycho-social treatment for the student, and teachers must become psycho-social therapists."- National Education Association, "Education for the ’70s," Today’s Education, January 1969
"Far too many people in America, both in and out of education, look upon the elementary school as a place to learn reading, writing and arithmetic." – Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, National Education Association Yearbook, 1947
"The NEA’s ultimate goal is to tap the legal, political and economic powers of the U.S. Congress. We want leaders and staff with sufficient clout that they may roam the halls of Congress and collect votes to re-order the priorities of the United States of America." – Terry Herndon, NEA Executive Director, 1973
"We are the biggest potential political striking force [union] in this country, and we are determined to control the direction of [public] education." – NEA President Catherine Barrett (1972)
"In the struggle to establish an adequate world government, the teacher can do much to prepare the hearts & minds of children for global understanding and cooperation…. At the very heart of all the agencies which will assure the coming of world government must stand the school, the teacher, and the organized profession." – The Teacher & World Government by former editor of the NEA Journal, Joy Elmer Morgan, 1946
"NEA and its affiliates are effective advocates because we have power, and we have power because there are more than 3.2 million people who are willing to pay us hundreds of millions of dollars in dues each year." – Bob Chanin, NEA General Counsel
"I don’t want a nation of thinkers. I want a nation of workers." – John D. Rockefeller, created the General Education Board (GEB) in 1903 to dispense Rockefeller funds to the National Education Association.
I suspect that most NEA members have never heard of any of this…
