Should Colleges Accept Students Who Need Remedial Help?
Not everyone attended schools that were adequately funded, came
from families that encouraged scholarship, or were provided safe learning environments. Scholars in this issue of the "Advocate"
debate admitting students to four-year institutions who apply with deficiencies in reading, writing, or math.
Omnibus Appropriations Shortchange Education Programs
The fiscal year 2004 budget package jeopardizes the well being
of children and families. Find out why NEA opposes this ill-conceived agreement and tell Congress that kids need them to be
accountable for providing the tools they need to meet high standards.
NEA, Colorado Educators Challenge Voucher Law - And Win
The Denver District Court last week said a voucher program proposed
by Gov. Bill Owens violated the right of public school districts to control education. NEA and its state affiliate sponsored
the suit on behalf of parents, educators, and taxpayers in 11 affected areas.
