Wisdom from a mom in North Carolina

Wisdom from a mom in North Carolina, where legislators adopted several aspects of the ALEC education agenda last session and cut education funding leading to decreased pay for teachers. “There is so much more to do. We have to let our teachers know we have their backs. Although parents divide along so many lines—religious or secular, liberal or conservative, vegetarian or meat-eating, working in or outside the home—most of us deeply value our public schools. Together, we will test Margaret Mead’s belief ‘that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.’ Our children face a powerful, well-financed threat. We must show them we are here to protect their future.” In Kansas, Game On sees that our teachers are vitally important advocates for our children’s education.http://www.slate.com/articles/life/education/2014/01/north_carolina_s_assault_on_teachers_has_to_stop.single.html
