Tell the Presidential Candidates: Don't Forget Ed!

    1. Sponsored by

      Don't Forget Ed

America’s education system is in turmoil. Right now, our schools are performing at a level far below almost every other major industrialized nation. And the statistics continue to get worse every year. How we educate our children affects not only their own chances for success and prosperity, it also directly affects America’s economy, health, and national security.  

Yet, as we head towards the 2012 Presidential election, the issue of education is shockingly underplayed on the campaign trail. The candidates say they care about education, but what seems to be missing from their speeches are real, tangible, effective solutions for turning our education system in the right direction.  

Join us in having your voice heard. Sign the petition today to help make sure the candidates Don’t Forget Ed.

      I want future generations to be able to get quality education that isn't going to cost their parents a fortune by having to attend private school for a good education.
