HOW CAN I START HELPING TEACHERS SPEAK UP?
- Speak up yourself. Inform parents, local community members, and public officials about your teaching and how it makes a difference in kids’ learning.
- Spread the ideas in this blog. Encourage the teachers you work with to learn and use the thinking and strategies for speaking up. Pass these ideas on to other teacher leaders so the ideas spread still further.
- Share your stories with us. Sign up on the “Contact Us” page to tell us your successes and challenges with speaking up, using comments on this blog. We’ll add the most helpful of these to our permanent blog content.
- Join in this effort. It’s a huge undertaking to help teachers across the country to actively build support for great education. If you’d like to help, tell us on the “Contact Us” page and we’ll e-mail about ways you can do this.
