Georgia Association of Educators Endorses the Dems

Yet another reason I homeschool. The Georgia Association of Educators endorsed Roy Barnes for governor. Not just that--every single candidate they endorsed is a democrat!

Governor – Roy Barnes
Interesting since the teachers were so angry with Barnes' plans to revamp the school system in his first term as governor that they are partially blamed for Barnes' loss to Sonny Purdue (R) in 2002.

Lt. Governor – Carol Porter
Ms. Porter's husband was running for governor. Wouldn't that have been cozy? Beyond co-owning a newspaper and raising four sons, I could find very little about her. She did blame the Republicans for not collecting enough sales taxes.

State Superintendent of Schools – Joe Martin
This guy appears to want to throw more money at the public schools and hope something sticks.

Secretary of State – Georganna Sinkfield
From her voting history from her time in the GA Assembly, it looks to me like she sides with Environmentalists, and liberals and against conservative issues, gun rights issues and business.

Labor Commissioner – Darryl Hicks
When other people seem to be running from Green Jobs, Mr. Hicks is  proudly displaying his support of this job-killing scheme.

Insurance Commissioner – Mary Squires
This "peach" was endorsed by the ALF-CIO. Need I say more?

Attorney General – Ken Hodges
According to some in his hometown, this guy seems to think he and his cronies are above the law. 

You can't tell me that--with the GAE's universal support of democrat candidates and policies--our children are not being subjected to their leftist agenda in the public schools. Georgia is for the most part a conservative state with very Christian beliefs. It boggles the mind that our "educators" are so out of touch with the people of the state.


  1. Kristin, I really like your site. And unfortunately, it sounds like educators in Georgia are like they are everywhere else. My wife and I spent our careers in higher education and we know that pro liberal propaganda is being dispersed there as well. It may be even a little worse at that level. Anyway, keep up the good work with the home schooling and this blog. I'm enjoying it.

  2. Kristin,

    Hitting a similar note this morning giving a perfect example of your wise choice in home schooling.

  3. I wish every parrent home schooled. Keep up the good work.

  4. Gee, Georgia sounds just like West Virginia!

  5. The GA Republican Party should take this and run with it. Maybe put it under the windshield wipers in the Mall parking lot:-)

  6. Are you surprised Kristin? The Democraps protect the teachers union and far too many incompetent teachers. You're doing the right thing by home schooling. Your kids will know about how great this country is instead of how to put a condom on a banana.

    School boards all across this country need to be voted out for caving into the unions and not putting the children first !!!
