Source from the CNN News, thousands of teachers in U.S. mainly in Washington D.C. and several parents have been shouting for a far-reaching change in the system of education couple of months ago. They were referring to the issue for “No Child Left Behind” rule in order to fix a defective education system in the country. The teachers with the parents and also the students joined together to obtain such policy.
To this, they call for a protest march on Washington to awaken change. A mentor and a national board-certified teacher for the Oakland, California, schools, whose name is Anthony Cody was recently addressed to CNN about the said protest march and its purpose, as well as their goal to gain. He said that last Teacher Appreciation Week, U.S. Secretary of Education has sent a letter of appreciation to teachers in U.S. that honor them along with lots of praises, but how come that the rules and policies in schools are still steady and not even changing being destructive?
Because of this, teachers find the statement of appreciation very alarming. As a result, teachers and parents collaborated to support education. They have started doing this hard work through building their alliance, intensifying their guiding principles plus finding out what they mainly wanted. What they need according to Cody is a positive education program and not just entirely critics.
That march was a real momentum for them. Their endorsement was critical, wherein all participants including the students, parent’s organizations, academics, and teachers who are all motivated with reference to the possibility for their voices to get heard; whatever the result they are hoping for a real change in the policies of U.S. education.
The hard work and the support of teachers in U.S. for the system of education is genuine and stimulating. So, how can parents and students return their gratitude? A THANK YOU teacher appreciation poem and personalize gifts are enough to make teachers supported.
