Kirk, Russell

National Review;11/11/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 44, p1301
The article analyzes the implications of the National Education Association's (NEA) power for U.S. politics and economy. U.S. Presidents Jimmy Carter has been reportedly threatened by NEA lobbyists that they will not endorse him for re-election, if he does not soon give them everything he promised in last year's campaign. Recently, a letter was sent by Richard L. Harris, Maricopa County School Superintendent, to many men of business, describing what the NEA means to do to America's economy, and urging them to resist by promoting "career education" and the teaching in schools.
