Why Won't NCTE Publish Info About Member Activities?
And so on. The newsletters seems to be a megaphone for the corporate Standardisto message. There's no endorsement, but the presence of the message without comment or rebuttal is in itself an endorsement.
I find it disheartening and unprofessional that NCTE refuses to acknowledge the existence of resistance. Yes, unprofessional. Professionals don't just parrot the Business Roundtable message--and remain silent in the face of that message. Professionals would not be afraid to let their membership knows that resistance exists.
