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.
