Today Education Secretary Rod Paige called the NEA (National Education Association), America’s largest teachers union, “a terrorist organization.” It was probably just a joke that was in very poor taste, but that’s not really much of an excuse.

UPDATE: Apparently Mr. Paige thinks this counts as an apology:

“It was an inappropriate choice of words to describe the obstructionist scare tactics the NEA’s Washington lobbyists have employed against No Child Left Behind’s historic education reforms.”
