We help families fight against outdated laws that keep poorly-performing teachers in the classroom and make it harder for schools to keep their best teachers. Laws like these are keeping millions of children in New York, Minnesota, and across the country from getting the great public education they deserve. We want to hear how outdated policies have affected your family and others in your community. We’d also like to hear your perspective on why it’s so important that all students have the opportunity to learn from great teachers. Share your story with us using the form below.
