Teachers Flock to 'Marxist Conference' At Northwestern UniversityTopics: Political News and commentaries
Here's further evidence that you need to know exactly who your child's teacher is, what's being taught to your children, and that the teachers unions are anti-everything our nation was founded on and upon which our freedoms, liberties, and national prosperity has been built:
[...] This Saturday, the Midwest Marxist Conference was held at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. The event was teeming with teachers who spoke about the new found bond between the radical socialists and their Teachers Union. The all-day event, which collected money to support Chicago Socialists and featured a communist bookstore, provided students on-campus along with the radical left community to plan the next phase in their activism.More here.

Although it's too long and cumbersome a label for a generation addicted to sound bites and simplistic labels, a fair description of Obama and his economic goals is to say that he is "an interventionist, corporatist, statist, Big Government progressive, free-market-hating control freak who favors economic policies of a Marxist-Leninist flavor."And yet the teachers unions are even more Marxist than Obama.
Back in March 2011, Sarah Knopp, a Los Angeles teachers union leader (in the Tax the Rich shirt) and Megan Behrent a New York City teacher affiliated with the International Socialist Organization, explain how to push Marxism in the public school classroom.
Also back in March 2011, Glenn Beck talked about teachers union teachers teaching socialism and Marxism to our children:
