Put the Parent Voice Back in Public Education!
This petition had 264 supporters
We object to the way in which Secretary of Education Arne Duncan's proposals to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) completely shut out the parent voice, encourage more test prep and narrowing of the curriculum, lead to more privatization and inequities in funding, and would further undermine the quality of our children's public schools.
Parent leaders from across America have written a letter to the President and the US Congress, posted here., demanding that parents have a seat at the decision-making table, and that they enact real education reforms that have been proven to work, including requiring more parent involvement and reducing class size.
We insist that the next version of the ESEA formally incorporates the views of public school parents. Please join us by signing the letter below!
