We are part of something larger than us, something that is taking root in America, in the world, and educators are standing up and saying “No more.” Our children are the ones who suffer under politicians latest ideas. Our children are the ones we experiment with, hoping that someday we will get it right. Our children deserve something better than having school done to them.
It is time to listen to the passionate teachers that actually have ideas for change. It is time for us to raise up and join together, reclaim what is ours, education, and let our voices be heard. It is time.
So join the discussion, write your editor, blog, speak up, discuss with anyone you can. We are not failing as educators, changes need to be made but they need to come from us, not from the politicians.
