HOWLER BY NSEA'S GRIESS
MAKES NATIONAL ED PUB:
BET HE'S . . .GO BIG RED-FACED
Winding up this week's Communique from the distinguished Web publication, the Education Intelligence Agency, www.eiaonline.com:
6) Quote of the Week. "The struggle in which we are engaged is as vital to our future today as was the outcome of the Civil War to our nation in 1860. The goal of these locusts is to impose their will on state after state until they have completely demolished government as we know it. There is a time for every generation to rise to the call – when the very existence of our nation, our state, our values, our culture and our public schools are threatened with extinction." – Nebraska State Education Association Executive Director Jim Griess on Initiative 423. (October 2006 The NSEA Voice)
Editor's Note: The Civil War was a violent armed struggle in which more than 600,000 Americans died, and was fought over questions like slavery vs. freedom.
Initiative 423 is a Nebraska ballot measure that would limit state government spending to previous years' amounts, with allowed increases for inflation and population growth.
