The National Education Association has proposed a resolution that would replace the word “mother” with the term “birthing parent” in all contracts in an effort to be more inclusive to the LGBTQIA+ community.
“Using this contract language, members need not worry about how a Board of Education/solicitor defines ‘maternity leave,’ ‘mother,’ and/or ‘father’; the language is an inclusive reflection of how LGBTQIA+ members build families,” the proposed resolution said.
According to Fox News, “NEA’s resolutions, called new business items (NBI) represent the teachers’ union’s opinions and beliefs. Many resolutions were voted on Wednesday by the Representative Assembly (RA), comprised of 6,000 educators, in Chicago as well as virtually. The resolution on the language change – NBI 63 – was ultimately not brought to a vote.”

Tiffany Justice of Moms for Liberty told Fox News Digital that she is now calling the NEA the “K-12 Cartel” because they are holding parents and children hostage to a radical agenda.
“We believe in American teachers, and we don’t believe that the lack of focus that the union has on children is represented,” she said.
“Normal people don’t use the term chestfeeding or birthing person or any of this stuff,” Nicole Neily of Parents Defending Education said. “I think it just further underscores how completely out of touch the teachers’ unions… are from the concerns of normal parents.”
“It’s horrifying,” she told Fox News Digital.
Elana Fishbein from No Left Turn in Education said the proposed resolution represents how the left wants to destroy the family.
“They are arrogant. They are dismissive of the family, the parents. It’s beyond Orwellian. Even in science fiction, I don’t know if you can have such a script of complete destruction of human society,” she said.
Another NEA resolution discusses”institutionally racist systems.”
“The National Education Association believes that, in order to achieve racial and social justice, educators must acknowledge the existence of white supremacy culture as a primary root cause of institutional racism, structural racism, and white privilege,” the resolution said.
“The Association believes that school districts must provide training in cultural competence, implicit bias, restorative practices and techniques, and racial justice,” it continued.
