The SOEA Conference continued today with a variety of workshops designed with the student members in mind. At lunch, I had a chance to share with them about the significance of what they did for Taft Middle School. Their work will make the difference in children's lives for years to come.
After I finished up, NEA Executive Committee member, Carolyn Crowder, spoke to the students about the NEA. She talked a great deal about great public schools being a basic right for every child. Carolyn was well received by OEA's student members. They understand the importance of what she has to say and will do their part to provide great public schools for every child in the buildings where they work.
