Goal: 30,000 Progress: 21,480
Sponsored by: StudentsFirst

During a speech, President Obama said, "Education is an investment that we need to win the future."

He's right. In order to invest in our kids' futures, we need to invest in teachers now.

The most important school-based factor in a child's education is teacher quality, and America's teachers are grossly underpaid. StudentsFirst is working to elevate the teaching profession by advocating teachers be rewarded for excellence. Those who show they can move kids along academically should be compensated accordingly.

Our great teachers are the ones who help shape our kids' lives, the ones who give them tools to succeed. Teachers help pave the way for children to become scientists, engineers, world leaders. Their impact on a child's life can't be underestimated.

As President Obama says, an investment in education is an investment in our future. Sign the pledge in support of paying America's effective teachers what they deserve.

Jun 26, 2014 Jan Rowley I think that we have to do better in compensation for teachers in the county where I live. I'm not sure they can even afford to live in the county where they teach and I don't think that they have had any raise in 6 years. Educators deserve better.
