The CEA teacher’s union seems to have objectives that do not involve educating children:
EDITORIAL: Tilting at capitalism as Colorado’s kids fall behind (yahoo.com)
Instead, the Colorado Education Association passed a resolution — blaming much of the world’s ills on capitalism.
“The CEA believes that capitalism inherently exploits children, public schools, land, labor, and resources,” the resolution read. “Capitalism is in opposition to fully addressing systemic racism (the school to prison pipeline), climate change, patriarchy (gender and LGBTQ disparities), education inequality and income inequality.”
That’s right, capitalism — the economic system responsible for the Industrial Revolution, the Model T Ford and the iPhone. It’s also the economic system that funds the construction of our public schools and, in a roundabout way, the hefty salaries of the CEA’s union bosses.
The resolution was adopted discreetly last month at the union’s state assembly but confirmed publicly for The Gazette only last week. It reads almost like a parody — an attempt to satirize Marx and Engels’ 1848 “Communist Manifesto” to reflect today’s woke sensibilities."

The approved resolution reads as follows:
*Proposed Resolution #3 – Economic Equity *
*Submitted by: Bryan Lindstrom *
*1 THE CEA BELIEVES THAT CAPITALISM INHERENTLY EXPLOITS CHILDREN, PUBLIC SCHOOLS, LAND, LABOR, AND RESOURCES. *
*2 CAPITALISM IS IN OPPOSITION TO FULLY ADDRESSING SYSTEMIC RACISM (THE SCHOOL TO PRISON PIPELINE), CLIMATE *
*3 CHANGE, PATRIARCHY (GENDER AND LGBTQ DISPARITIES), EDUCATION INEQUALITY, *
*4 AND INCOME INEQUALITY. *
The final version reflects the editing of unnecessary words, but reads like any other Marxist, anti-capitalist and anti-American platform would.
