Goal: 30,000 Progress: 21,673
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 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.

Aug 16, 2014 Patricia Hayes Teachers are the ones who help our children THE MOST!!! They should be financially compensated for their contributions. It is not right that an individual who has so much of an impact on our future makes so little money, ESPECIALLY here in UTAH!!!

Aug 13, 2014 Shawn Alexander Teachers have a thankless job that they are mostly under compensated for - better pay may provide us with better teachers. Better teachers create better students - better students ensure a stronger future. This just makes sense.
