Goal: 15,000 Progress: 8,639
Sponsored by: StudentsFirst

America's schools are failing our kids. On international comparisons, U.S. kids are in the middle of the pack or worse. Fixing the problem requires an education system that puts students' needs ahead of special interests or wasteful bureaucracies.

To succeed in our mission, we are demanding that lawmakers, courts and school administrators create and enforce policies that put students first. No school-based factor is more important than the quality of the teacher. We must recognize, reward and retain excellent educators. We also want to ensure families can choose among several excellent schools, not just get stuck with one underperforming choice. Americans know, and we want to remind them, that our schools are an anchor for our communities and gateway to our national prosperity and competitive standing in a global economy. If you agree, sign the pledge and join us in our fight.

The movement begins with you. We want to truly transform education in America, to create a system that puts students' needs first.

We believe:

· Great teachers can make a tremendous difference for students of every background; all children deserve great teachers.
· Students should not need luck to get a good education; every family should be able to choose an excellent school.
· Public dollars belong where they can make the biggest difference; we must fight ineffective programs and bureaucracy.

Apr 12, 2014 angie robison The school my son went to is aweful with kids who have special needs; my son recieved 22 referrals as a kindergartener. The teacher and principal were overwhelmed and had no clue what to do and there were 40 children in his class. Things need to change.
