The IEA/NEA today joins the 21st Century communications community with promised regular email updates, even for retired teachers.
This is a very welcome step toward keeping active and retired teachers in Illinois informed, especially about ongoing court cases, pensions, legislation discussions, election issues, political candidate statements and more.
A few bloggers have been addressing this issue for years. As a matter of fact, the day before yesterday Fred Klonsky, Glen Brown, John Dillon and I took part in a four way shared blog conversation titled “A Conversation Regarding Leadership, Communication and Membership of the Illinois Education Association.” Read the entire conversation HERE.
It is another step forward, and a welcome step, to regularly use social media for communication.
Thank you, IEA Board members.
