Trouble for the NEA

Kirk, Russil
October 1980
National Review;10/17/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 21, p1271
The article argues that a presidency of Republican Ronald Reagan would diminish the political clout of the National Education Association (NEA) in the federal government. Under the administration of U.S. President Jimmy Carter, the NEA was a favored group. In fact, the NEA was said to be instrumental for the creation of the U.S. Department of Education. But under a Reagan presidency, that department will be abolished. Of course, to the detriment of the NEA.
