Stop Discrimination of Special Education Students by the NEA ! Have President Garcia Resign!

This petition had 1,778 supporters

The president of the NEA has blatantly and publicly humiliated and discriminated against special education students in the U.S. In her October 27th speech, she described students as "chronically 'tarded and medically annoying". Although she has apologized through another forum, giving a very implausible explanation for her choice of words, this type of faux pas is not acceptable for an educator who happens to be the president of an association to which three million members belong, many of them educators as well. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! Sign the petition and tell the NEA that Lily Eskelsen Garcia needs to resign her post IMMEDIATELY and also publicly and formally apologize to the families she has offended!
