During the first day of the NEA Board Meeting,
potential Republican Presidential candidate, Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, addressed the Board and visitors.
Senator Hagel was the first Republican to address an organized group of our members in the NEA building outside of a Presidential Interview Committee, which is unusual in its self.
Senator Hagel answered questions on a variety of topics including health care and vouchers. I hope his willingness to meet with the NEA will encourage other Republican candidates to do the same.
