NEA Endorses Obama’s Bid for Second Term
By STEPHANIE BANCHERO
CHICAGO—The nation’s largest teachers union voted Monday to endorse President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election bid, during a raucous convention that highlighted widespread unhappiness with the president’s education policies.
The vote, during the annual convention of the National Education Association, was supported by 72% of the union’s representative assembly. The assembly is the top decision-making body for the union and the endorsement allows the NEA, which represents 3.2 million teachers, to start campaigning for Mr. Obama.
