Commentary and Criticism about the National Education Association
We have absolutely no affiliation with the National Education Association and do not represent its views in any way, shape or form.
National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15 - October 15 and the NEA has provided K-12 lesson plan resources to help celebrate this fact.
I don’t have a major problem celebrating Hispanic Heritage month in September/October, Native American Heritage Month in November, Black History Month in January, etc.
But consider the following:
Given the inevitable demographic shifts which are occurring, will future politicians and educators assign a month to White Heritage?
In other words, will a future white minority be given the same respect that we now give to present minorities?
