Obama To Snub NEA Convention? [UPDATED]

There's unconfirmed Internet chatter that Obama, slated for formal endorsement at this week's NEA convention, is either not going to appear or is merely going to make a satellite appearance.  This is a far cry from his early reliance on teachers union support, especially in Illinois, and his appearance at previous conventions.  EdWeek says he's going to talk on Saturday.  The DCTA says they aren't sure.  Pro-life groups who are planning to picket him at the convention are sure hoping he shows up.  I don't really care, but thought I'd pass it on.  No word yet from the Obama campaign, though I only asked them about it five minutes ago.

UPDATE:  So much for Internet chatter.  The press folks at the NEA say Obama will address the convention.
