Teachers write: "We're not being heard"

"The sleeping giant stirs"

Check out the Facebook group, Teachers' Letters to Obama. Anthony Cody, a veteran and National Board Certified science teacher from Oakland, launched the new movement with his own letter. Cody, writing in Edweek, says that more than 600 teacher/bloggers have signed on and more that 100 eloquent letters have been posted thus far, and more come in every day.
The overwhelming message is that, although we supported President Obama as a candidate and continue to have hope today, we do not feel heard by this administration, and have grave concerns about many of the actions of U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

  1. Thank you for featuring our letters project. The Facebook group has grown to more than 700 educators, and we are using that space to share perspectives, educate ourselves about the issues, and plan further actions. Please join us there:
