Goal: 30,000 Progress: 21,701
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.

Aug 28, 2014 Patricia Vance I work at a school in Tucson, AZ. We have the most amazing teachers who deserve to paid way more than they are for all that they do. However, the rest of us need better pay also. Our Legislature doesn't want to pay for public education.

Aug 20, 2014 Erin Peffley My teachers formed my life. As time went on, many of them could not afford to continue to teach, and left the profession, taking their knowledge, skill, and talent with them. This country needs to make teaching an honored, well-paid career.
