The NEA has devolved from its mission of promoting education into an arm of the Democrat National Committee and is no longer worthy of its federal charter.

Dear Representative Fitzgerald,
On behalf of the more than 2.3 million members of the Association of Mature American Citizens – AMAC, including over 7,100 who reside in WI-05, I write to offer our support for H.R. 7510, the National Education Association Charter Repeal Act.
AMAC members have steadily expressed their concern over the quality of education their children and grandchildren are receiving in our nation’s public schools. They are expressly concerned about the indoctrination of students to radical race and gender curricula, among other matters.
Your bill would remove the National Education Association’s (NEA) charter, and with good reason. H.R. 7510 states that the NEA “has drifted substantially from its core mission and become a massive political operation dedicated to electing Democrats and imposing a radical progressive agenda on America’s schools.” The legislation also notes that union members voted to support “expanding professional development for educators to help create student Gender Sexuality Alliance clubs” in 2019, and “critical race theory, calling it “reasonable and appropriate,” and to spend $56,500 on researching and shaming organizations fighting the inclusion of critical race theory in schools” in 2021.
Moreover, one only need examine where the NEA spends its millions of dollars to understand their loss of political objectivity. As your bill states, “According to disclosures made to the Office of Labor-Management Standards, from September 2019 to August 2021 the NEA spent over $116.7 million on political activities and lobbying, and in the 2020 election cycle, 95.7 percent of candidate campaign contributions by the NEA went to Democrat candidates.”
AMAC agrees that America’s children need not be subjected to radical, Marxist ideology like critical race theory and gender confusing curricula. The NEA has devolved from its mission of promoting education into an arm of the Democrat National Committee and is not worthy of its federal charter.
As a member-driven organization, AMAC thanks you, Representative Fitzgerald, and your co-sponsors, for standing up to the powerful influences of the NEA and supporting America’s school children. We are pleased to offer our association’s full support for H.R. 7510, the National Education Association Charter Repeal Act.
