Clinton Accepts NEA White House Endorsement

The presumed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has accepted her endorsement from the National Education Association (NEA). Clinton has acknowledged this support by offering education leaders a “seat at the table.”

“Because I have this idea that when we’re making decisions about education, we should actually listen to educators,” she said.

Her proposition involves de-emphasizing standardized testing by shifting the focus of tests as an evaluation of performance. In addition, she promised to push legislation to let “everyone be able to refinance your student loans, so you never have to pay more than you can afford.” Public servants would receive debt forgiveness after 10 years.

Receiving an endorsement from NEA is equivalent to becoming endorsed by one in every 58 people and one in every 32 U.S households. Its members are spread among 30 states and include 452,000 teachers.
