Tell the Presidential Candidates: 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.

Letter to
Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney
President Barack Obama
I am deeply disturbed about the state of education in America. Our schools are failing. Our students are struggling. And the statistics are only getting worse.

If you want my support, I need to hear more from you about how you plan to fix the problems with education. And not just the same old platitudes. I want to know that you have real, tangible solutions, and that once in office, you’re ready to take serious action.

I’ll be watching your acceptance speech at your party’s convention.

Let me know that you’ve put education at the top of your to-do list.

This election, Don’t Forget Ed.

Thank You.
