Education should be left to educators. Please work to ensure that education policy is created by educators, and not by corporations or politicians.
Public education policy in the United States is under attack from a variety of directions. Corporate influences want to push for a for-profit model to tap into what they see as an untapped source of income. Misguided “reformers” want to push to end basic due-process protections for teachers in a quest to root out the insignificant numbers of “bad teachers.” Politicians continue to push for “teacher accountability” while ignoring the accountability of the parties that control student achievement the most; parents and students. Meanwhile, our education system, our dedicated teachers, and our students all suffer further degradation of their morale.
