Just joining us this Monday morning for the 2010 National Education Association Representative Assembly? You’ve got some catching up to do, because Teacher Beat’s been blogging all weekend.

NEA Delegates Vote ‘No Confidence’ in Race to the Top: The item passed, but not every delegate wanted it to.

It’s Easy Being Green: Find out what the NEA is doing to reduce waste, at the RA and at its headquarters building.

2010 Greatest Education Governor Award goes to Maryland’s Gov. Martin O’Malley. (He didn’t flex his biceps or play a duet with NEA VP Lily Eskelsen. Too bad.)

Also make sure to check out these pieces by my fellow Reporters Who Cover Teachers. Sam Dillon has the scoop that NEA didn’t invite Obama administration officials to the RA this year, as well as the news the U.S. Department of Education has been placing stories about reform-minded unions.

Over at Intercepts, Mike Antonucci has the scoop on an NEA-AFT fracas in Alabama and what the heck’s up with all those new business items out of California.
