Jason Gray started this petition to US Department of Education

My name is Jason, and like many Americans, I have children in public school.  We expect teachers to teach our children necessary skills and knowledge required to be a contributing member of our society.  Teachers do not make near enough to live a fulfilling life, many working multiple jobs; thus taking away valuable lesson plan preparation time.  Teachers are expected to provide supplies for their own classroom, often coming out of their own pocket.  When teachers are worked to exhaustion, their classroom prowess may take a hit and your children are not getting a teacher at their best.  Teachers chose this profession because they want to help YOUR children succeed in life.  We owe teachers a great debt and overwhelming amounts of gratitude.  This petition is my way of trying to give teachers the thanks they deserve and, hopefully,  the paycheck they deserve.  Please help me help our teachers! 

Teachers deserve a living wage, one that will not require them to work multiple jobs during the school year.  Happy, well rested teachers are going to be the best teachers and give our children the best education possible. 

We've all had at least one teacher that helped us become the adults we are today.  Let's give back! 

God bless America!
