Where do the presidential candidates stand on education?
posted by: Alana | October 28, 2016, 05:17 PM


We're getting down to the wire and early voting is already in full swing across the nation. There is so much at stake in this presidential race from education reform initiatives to school funding, yet thousands of Americans are still undecided heading into the 2016 elections. It's absolutely imperative that educators make well informed decisions at the voting booth this November.


KANAAE is proudly non-partisan, does not endorse candidates, or tell members how to vote.  We do, however, urge each and every educator to brush up on the candidates' stances on education at the federal, state, AND local levels before heading to the polls.

The Cat, The Fish, and The Waiter
posted by: Garry | November 06, 2015, 05:53 PM

Guest Post by Rose Bergues


The Cat, The Fish, and The Waiter is a charming story penned by teenaged author Marianna Bergues. The whimsical tale would be a hit with elementary school children even if the book was constructed in the ordinary manner…but it isn’t!

The story revolves around French waiter Peter who attempts to manage a busy day at Le Petit Café, all the while being besieged by various requests. By an odd coincidence, two vacationing friends ask him to pet-sit a fish and a cat. Additionally, Peter’s new mattress is delivered on the same day. All seems to go well at first, until Peter (who seemingly has a bad habit of granting access to his apartment to anyone who asks) comes home to find the place ransacked and the animals missing.

The Issue of Teacher Licensure
posted by: Garry | November 04, 2015, 11:19 PM

Alabama State Teacher of the Year and finalist for National Teacher of the Year, Ann Marie Corgill resigned from teaching after 21 years this week. By all accounts, Ms. Corgill was an excellent teacher. She was a National Board Certified Teacher. Her students, colleagues, and principal all spoke well of her. She was a mentor to other teachers and a published author. Moreover, there’s every indication that she loved her students and that she loved her job. What could possibly drive such a talent out of the system?


The answer is teacher licensing.

Welcome to National Employee Freedom Week 2015!
posted by: Garry | August 18, 2015, 03:23 PM

National Employee Freedom Week (NEFW) is a national campaign aimed at educating teachers and other employees about their options regarding union membership. NEFW was co-created by AAE and the Nevada Policy Research Institute (NPRI) because labor unions like the NEA don’t inform their members of their legal rights to opt-out of membership, leaving millions of teachers and other employees completely unaware that they have options.

Navigating the Murky Waters of Reciprocity
posted by: Garry | June 10, 2015, 07:57 PM

There was a time when educators could count on being granted their license and then spending the rest of their career in a single state, district, or even school.  More and more often this is no longer the case.  As the economy changes, the teaching force continues to evolve.  This is amplified by the fact that the distribution of teachers is not even across the country.  While many communities, mostly urban, are experiencing shortages of teachers, others have a surplus.  Teachers in areas with a surplus may well move to an area with a shortage, gain experience, and then apply in their desired state once they are more established.

Although it may be hard to believe, we’re fast approaching the end of the school year. In most districts, testing is well underway if not complete. For many of us there’s only a few weeks left to wrap up the year before the two months of reflection, planning, and downtime begin.   How you spend those months can have a great influence on what happens the upcoming year.  Here are our suggestions for relaxing, productive summer break:

My Take on National School Choice Week
posted by: Garry | January 30, 2015, 05:13 PM

I received a National School Choice Week flyer in my mailbox yesterday.  It had a picture of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and US Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) shaking hands and smiling.  Obviously, they both agree that school choice is an important issue.  That image stuck with me.  In a nation so politically divided, it’s rare to see such bipartisanship.
