The New Jersey [Mis]education Association (a.k.a. “NJEA”) isn’t content spending $11.3 million of union dues on lobbying. Oh no, Save Jerseyans! Now we need to turn teachers into activists, too. And for a President who sends his kids to private school? Will the hypocrisy never end??
This recruitment email hit teachers’ mailboxes earlier today; it appears to be part of a larger NEA election year volunteer drive. Remember: it’s for the kids!!

Pledge to be an Educator for Obama
Now more than ever, we need to elect a President who shares our vision for a stronger America. President Barack Obama has earned the NEA’s recommendation because of his unwavering support for education and students and his commitment to a vibrant middle class.
To show our support for NEA here in New Jersey, NJEA is asking members to take the pledge and become an Educator for Obama. By taking the pledge, you can volunteer to spend two hours per month working with Educators for Obama, commit to be a spokesperson in your community, or even recruit other educators to make the pledge themselves. Your pledge does not involve any financial commitment, so please do your part and pledge to be an educator for Obama today!
