Another country heard from. Teacher's union puts Alinsky on recommended reading list.
"NEA recommends the following Saul Alinsky books to those members of our Association who are involved in grassroots organizing."
So much for the "public servant" model of Miss Friendly, the caring teacher.
You know, at River Valley High School near Marion, Ohio, in 1969, I had my copy of Rules for Radicals confiscated by Principal Barger. He said it was "subversive literature." Right.
On a related note, I have not had time to finish a book Charly Gullett sent me, entitled Raising Hell With Alinsky: Conservative Activism and Civil Disobedience, but the skim-through looked promising. I'll put it on my insomniac readding list and try to have a review soon.
