Social Justice Resurfaces in Nebraska
Nebraska has a Right to Work Law which gives teachers the freedom to choose whether or not to ort or join a labor union in order to keep a job. Claiming to represent Nebraska public school teachers the Nebraska Education Association has come up with a social justice strategic plan for all teachers in that state. Joe Dejka has the story in the Omaha World Herald.
The labor union representing Nebraska public school teachers wants to advance “a culture of social justice,” according to a new strategic plan approved last month.
The plan calls for more diversity in teacher recruitment, training teachers in “cultural proficiency” and promoting a legislative agenda that “advances human and civil rights.”
