Green Room

Coverage of the NEA Convention Begins July 2

posted at 5:14 pm on June 24, 2013 by

For the 16th consecutive year, I will provide daily gavel-to-gavel coverage from the floor of the National Education Association Representative Assembly. This year the convention takes place in Atlanta, Georgia.

I will blog each day’s events here in the Greenroom and on Intercepts. The first convention report will be posted July 2 and each evening thereafter until the convention adjourns on July 6.

I expect the proceedings will contain a lot of talk about “turning the corner” and “going on offense,” very similar to what we have heard from the AFL-CIO for the past, oh, 25 years. It’s an off-year, and as far as I know, NEA isn’t planning any earthshaking changes in policy.

I will be available via e-mail (mike AT for your questions and comments during the convention, but please make allowances for delays in my response. Happy Independence Day!

Thanks for infiltrating that nest of rattlesnakes, Mike. Your reports should be enlightening.

I’m a teacher and I think I’d go batty being there, so thanks for entering the lion’s den for us!

Be sure to blast a headline if they actually discuss, you know, education.
