Goal: 30,000 Progress: 21,577
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.

Jul 24, 2014 Megan Wood Teacher retention needs to be improved and this could greatly help with that. For the amount of hours and stress teachers are asked to deal with, they should be paid much more than they are currently.

Jul 19, 2014 (Name not displayed) I am going into my 38th year as a Special Education Teacher. I really love working with these students. But, Teachers really need to be paid more money. Now, you are lucky if a Special Education Teacher continues teaching more than 7 years.
