If We Don’t Act Now, Who Will Teach Our Kids?

About the Pledge

America’s schools are in crisis, 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 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 major change in the way we treat our teachers, and we need to give the next generation hope that there’s a real future in teaching.

Here's where you come in. Take the pledge, and click to watch the video that shows how one incredible teacher is making a difference.

I pledge to support organizations such as TNTP, The New Teacher Center, and and encourage the next generation to go into teaching.
