NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia, Vice President Becky Pringle and Secretary-Treasurer Princess Moss.

Put aside for a moment all the debate (actually too little debate) about Common Core and high-stakes testing.

Or the other 100 New Business Items that will be considered before the NEA Representative Assembly wraps up on Sunday.

The 9,000 delegates did something quite remarkable this morning.

They elected three minority women as leaders of the 3 million member National Education Association, the largest labor union in the United States.

It is a historic event.
