Sen. Barack Obama is expected to address the NEA Representative Assembly via satellite the morning of July 5, the third day of the gathering. There is no word yet on whether he will speak to members of the AFT who, incidentally, are meeting in his hometown, Chicago.
The AFT general session doesn’t start until July 11, so there’s still some time for an announcement, but is it possible the presumptive Democratic candidate remembers the smaller union first endorsed Hillary Clinton way back in October last year?
Time will tell.
