Petition: Stand Strong for Public Education

May 14, 2011

I am not a real “sign a petition” kind of person. I don’t trust the paid collectors who stand outside my local grocery or drug store so I most just say a polite, “No Thank You,” and move on. But this petition, link above is from the NEA (National Education Association) and I feel it is an important one to take part in and I hope all my colleagues will do the same.

With this petition, I commit to standing strong for our students, educators and public schools. Along with the NEA, I will work to:

  • Defeat efforts in Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, Idaho and across the country that undermine collective bargaining, weaken support for working families and strengthen the grip of powerful corporate interests.
  • Elect pro-public education candidates at the local, state and national level in 2012, who will stand strong for public schools.
  • Ensure that reform of No Child Left Behind includes the voice of educators.

I’m adding my name and joining with others who are ready to fight for our future. We won’t back down.
