NEA Supports Affirmative Action Programs

The National Education Association, the largest teacher's union in the United States, has voted to support affirmative action programs. At the organization's annual conference, delegates voted to urge local unions to use affirmative action programs in education hiring. The NEA issued the vote in light of recent congressional and legal challenges to current affirmative action programs.
