Goal: 30,000 Progress: 21,539
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 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.

Jul 18, 2014 Sally Kent I had a very good education in a small school with small classes, and my teachers were committed to giving us the best education we could get. My High School Education, knowledge wise, can meet or beat a lot of people who have BA received after 1990.

Jul 14, 2014 Janet Price I quit teaching when I could not afford to live in the county in which I taught - that was in 1983. Things haven't changed and as long as there are Republicans, low pay will be the norm.
Jul 13, 2014 Mary Clawsey Raising teachers' pay and according them more respect should attract more people to the profession and allow those doing the hiring to be more selective.
