NEA RA Day 2
VP Joe Biden spoke to us first thing and he was introduced by his wife, Dr. Jill Biden. He gave a great speech about the importance of public education and recognizing what we, as teachers, do. I posted some of his comments on the JEA Facebook page. The main idea was that there are just different approaches to helping public education. We covered a lot of new business items. In addition, there was a panel who talked about programs in their locals that are helping raise the bar for entry into the profession. Summaries of their comments are also posted on the JEA Facebook page.
