NEA RA Day 4 Final Day
This is the day we stay until all business is done. We approved committee reports and resolutions. We finished all 89 new business items by passing (requires action by NEA), by defeating (no action), by referring (to committee for study), or by not considering (usually outside the education realm). Details have been posted on the JEA Facebook page. We also discussed and approved the strategic plan and budget, which has been cut significantly, for the next two years. President Obama could not be in attendance, so he called in to speak to us. His best quote was, "You can't help Americans without helping education." Melissa and Mallory both won In Your Seat drawings. The Jordan UniServ met the goal of raising $180 each for the NEA Fund for Children and Public Education.
