Resolutely foolish 

David Huber sends me some interesting thoughts on NEA resolutions. Here are two:

Resolution B-40: Physical Education. Physical education programs ... should be cooperative in nature, and culturally sensitive..."
Can't have competitive games now, can we? (How can you avoid it? By having no winners?) And what the hell is "culturally sensitive" phys. ed.?

"... the NEA supports access to higher education for undocumented students and access to financial aid and in-state tuition to state colleges and universities in the state where they reside."
How 'bout that? You're here illegally but you should get financial aid and in-state tuition! How would you feel if you applied for financial aid -- were denied -- and then found out an illegal alien (oops, "undocumented student") got it?

Plenty more over at the Cube.
