The newsletter reports that five representatives of Educators Against Apartheid met with the top executives of McGraw-Hill Inc. to urge them to divest. McGraw-Hill was a leader of the Sullivan movement, and it refused to divest. Therefore, E.A.A. launched a boycott of all McGraw-Hill products, and, on February 27, McGraw-Hill announced it will divest. The newsletter says United Federation of Teachers President Sandra Feldman and the Delegates Assembly have refused to endorse the April 25 march on Washington. The newsletter says E.A.A. has developed a curriculum kit called "Apartheid is Wrong." The newsletter says the U.S. government and the apartheid regime cooperated for three years in providing military aid to the Nicaraguan contras. The newsletter reports that E.A.A. raised $425 at its February meeting; all the funds and school supplies were given to the African National Congress (ANC) for the school in Tanzania.
