• Wayne Patterson: Step Down from the Warwick School Board
    Wayne Patterson, was charged with Driving While Intoxicated on October 15th, 2011. The school board has strict policies for students on reckless driving and alcohol use. It's important for students to see that DWI is not acceptable behavior for them, or our elected officials. Mr. Patterson needs to set a good example and step down as a school board member.

  • Reduce the Influence of High-Stakes Standardized Tests in Tennessee
    The results of standardized tests are now the main factor that determines the success or failure of a school, its teachers, and its students. Standardized tests are biased and simply measure test taking skills, not actual knowledge. They stifle teacher creativity and cause many teachers to resent their jobs. It's time to take some of the power away from test results in Tennessee.

  • We refuse Rick Scott's signature on a Florida University diploma
    If you have just earned your degree from a Florida University, good job! But on that otherwise pristine diploma there will be a smear of ink that reads, "Rick Scott Governor." Yes, the same governor who works constantly to remove student's rights to higher education, has had the bad taste to put his ugly signature on that beautiful degree! Do you really want him to defile the student's testaments to hard work, intelligence, and dedication?

  • Stand Up for Racial Justice in Santa Monica – Malibu Schools
    Recent school-based racial incidents demonstrate that our children’s school climate is not safe. Recent test scores demonstrate that, not only has there been no progress closing the racial academic achievement gap, the gap has widened.

  • Americans deserve to know the truth!
    There have been so many lies spread about President Obama - both personally and professionally. A website has been created in Palm Beach County whose soul intention is to tell the truth about the accomplishment of this President and to state the "pants on fire" and other lies spread and point the finger at the person who spread the lies.

  • Increase Government Funding to Train New Teachers about Asperger Syndrome
    Asperger Syndrome is a form of autism that is hard to detect. It was recently discovered but many are not aware of what to look for and most educators have no training in recognizing or teaching children with Asperger Syndrome. Many students with this syndrome are given inappropriate educational placements, especially African American males. This helps extend the achievement gap. If placed appropriately, children with Asperger Syndrome will be given the opportunity to learn. (Bill Gates is an example of a person with Asperger Syndrome.)

  • Appoint Miguel Ortega to the TUSD Governing Board
    Our kids need an advocate on the TUSD Governing Board! Mr. Ortega has already been vetted by the voting public and almost 40,000 voters found him acceptable--in fact, affirmatively voted for him!--his appointment will be the least politically controversial, thus assuring a smooth transition.

    College tuition in US has gone through the roof in the past 10-15 years. The reason there is so much default in loan repayment is because the tuition was so high to begin with. This is not so in any other country in the world. In fact, in most countries, university education is free or heavily subsidized by the state. It is only in the US that graduates start life buried in loans. We appeal to universities across the US to lower tuition, so that future generations don't get into the same financial straits that our current graduates are in.

  • Lower The Independent Age For Financial Age
    The current age to have automatic independent status to receive financial aid is 24. We would like to lower that age to 21 to accommodate more students who are currently unable to qualify for financial aid because they have to file as a dependent. Students should not be denied access to education based on their parents income when they can determine their independence prior to age 24.
