If We Don't Act Now, Who Will Teach Our Kids?
America’s schools are in crises, and the only people who can give our kids the education they deserve are underappreciated and underpaid. Think it doesn’t matter? Think again. A whopping 50 percent of all teachers leave the classroom within five years. Even scarier, half of the nation’s teachers will become eligible for retirement in the next decade, which means the entire teaching profession is at risk if this trend continues. We need a massive change in the way we treat our teachers, and to give the next generation hope that there’s a real future in teaching.
Here's where you come in.
