Commentary and Criticism about the National Education Association (NEA)
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?
