Let's make a stand

We need to change education and the direction that it is currently headed. Teachers are beginning to become paid more or less based on the way their students perform on standardized testing. I know when I was in school, how well I did on the test was in no way related to how well my teacher was.

I started a petition to try and end this. Teachers should not have to teach to the test just to worry about whether they can feed their families. I know I will not even want my children learning what will be "on those tests" in the first place. Children are not numbers. Teachers are not numbers. We are all individuals and need to be treated as such. Please sign my petition and share with everyone. We can make a difference.

Please sign and then pass on!!!
