Goal: 30,000 Progress: 18,973
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.

Apr 15, 2014 (Name not displayed) Higher wages validate higher education standards and public respect! The industry is lacking in attracting quality and passionate people because of the low wage structure and high workload! Time to balance the scales and show more respect.

Apr 13, 2014 Frances Foster Teachers deserve to get paid what they are worth especially for all they have to deal with, parents who expect them to geach their children not only school lessons but what they should be taught at home by their parents.
