I regularly receive invitations to participate in essay contests devoted to rethinking American education. These competitions, I fear, are the worst way to spur real change.

At their national convention last week, NEA delegates voted against a motion for the organization to “re-dedicate itself to the pursuit of increased student learning.”

At the National Education Association’s annual convention, delegates voted down a motion that would have required the nation’s largest teachers union to only consider endorsing candidates who “publicly state their opposition to all charter school expansion.”

A teacher who wants to influence education policy would be better advised to run for school board or for the state legislature than to go to Washington.
