US Teachers- Elections Quickly Approaching
As you, my fellow colleagues, are all aware,
the elections are quickly approaching. I
urge all of you to urge your students'
parents in your weekly newsletters this week
or in any conferences or contacts, to make
sure they are registered to vote.
I know we aren't allowed to wear political
buttons to work but if I have been asked by
anyone, I am quick to show them what each
candidate has stated about education and
what they want for the future of our state
or country. My opinions might play a role
but I just show them the facts which have
been stated by the candidates themselves.
Personally, I know in my state, our whole
state of education will drastically change
if a particular candidate is elected. Check
out what is going on in your own state. Urge
your students' parents to register.
Encourage them to vote in November. Find out
what your candidates are standing for,
especially in education.
