I have had several emails from people at the NEA representative assembly asking me if I was no longer supportive of the Save Our Schools organization.

Apparently some delegate got up and said I had disassociated myself from the group.

I replied that this was untrue.

I was invited to speak this summer, and I declined but that was no indication of a lack of support, just a wish to minimize travel during the summer.

I participated as the lead respondent in an SOS webinar on June 19. I think that is a show of support.

I support SOS.

I support any organization that supports public education.
