Teachers have been disappointed and frustrated, though not surprised, by President-elect Trump’s nomination of Betsy DeVos for U.S. secretary of education. With this nomination, the nation is entering dangerous, uncharted territory.
NEA, in partnership with AFT, has organized a call to action so that you can share your concerns.
Add your name to join with educators, parents, students, and all public education supporters to say: These are our values, and I demand that our secretary of education and every elected official respect and uphold this vision for high-quality public schools for every single student.
Read the letter, then add your name: Commit to student success.
Stop this from happening.
Education should not ever be treated as big business. Our students should be more than a bottom line or a fiscal data point.
