From the NEA-RA

Bonjour from Nawlins!  My apologies for not posting earlier.  The internet situation here is pretty bad.  The RA is in full session today with some 60 new business items to discuss and vote on, as well as voting on the budget.  This was my first RA and it was fascinating!  Much of the RA is devoted to K-12 issues but Higher Ed is also well represented and is becoming a growing caucus.  I joined the Contingent Faculty Caucus which is dedicated to lobbying for higher education and specifically adjunct issues within NEA.  Seeing 8000 delegates and 5000 staff and guests in a convention center all talking about educational issues is truly an awesome and awe inspiring sight.  If you have ever thought about wanting to be involved, going to the IEA-RA or the NEA-RA is amazing!  Watch this space in the next day or two as I will upload some pictures from the NEA-RA!
