Governor Rick Snyder, Michigan Legislature, Carol Goss, Michael Flanagan: Help End the EAA's Campaign Against Whistleblower Teacher Brooke Harris

The only thing our children have left in this world are adults who will either stand witness and fight (and fall) for them or adults who feed them to the profit machine. Ms. Brooke Harris is a young, award winning educator who was placed on leave by the Education Achievement Authority (EAA), Governor Rick Snyder's project that removes "failing" public schools and places them into a state detention system governed by a board he appoints. Without public accountability, the EAA does what it wants, and that includes silencing those who would speak up about the learning and teaching conditions inside the EAA. Placing the needs of her students and her community before her own, Ms. Harris has repeatedly testified on behalf of students about the deficient learning and teaching conditions inside the EAA. On May 9, 2013, she testified one too many times, and now after being placed on indefinite leave, faces a pre-termination hearing on July 15, 2013. Please stand up for our children and our community by supporting Ms. Harris. Tell Governor Snyder and his partners to end this EAA experiment now and stop the campaign against this brave young teacher.  All of Michigan, this brave young teacher is sacrificing herself AGAIN for our children. Please Stand Up Now and support her. Finally, don't forget to read the letter below addressed to Governor Snyder et al.
