• End High Stakes Testing In New Hampshire
    New Hampshire school children are spending too much time on standardized tests, practicing for tests and not enough time learning. These tests do nothing to actually help the students who take them. Worse yet, politicians are using the results of these tests to justify deep budget cuts for public schools and to punish good teachers. It's time to end the era of high-stakes standardized tests in New Hampshire.

  • No More High-Stakes Standardized Tests in SC
    High-stakes standardized testing has a negative impact on schools, teachers, and students. Our state has plans to adopt a pay-for-performance model to grade and punish our hard-working teachers. Accountabilty and control of public schools needs to return to local communities. Help save our schools!

  • QUALITY EDUCATION FOR ALL
    Our democracy rests on sound, universal public education. The same range and quality of programs must be available to all students. Let's take a leaf from the notebook of Rahm Emmanuel when deciding where to send his children to school, and demand that all students get the U. Of Chicago's Lab School Curriculum!

  • Petition to Invite God to School
    The purpose of this petition is to restore America's schools back to being the world's leader in educating our children. At this point in time we cannot succeed without God's help. We must stop being hypocritical by proclaiming, "In God We Trust" but not trusting Him with the fundamental institution which is the foundation of our great society. Until we rely on God's power our schools (and our society) mores will continue to detriorate.

  • Give Private Loans an Income Based Repayment Option
    In 2009, the Obama administration passed a law allowing Federal Student loans to be repaid via an income-based plan. It was a great step forward. Unfortunately, private lenders are still able to charge ridiculous interest rates and offer only fixed monthly payment plans on private loans. With the recession on, the job market has changed; private lenders should change their repayment options as well.

  • Private Student Loan reform
    Private student loan institutions like Sallie Mae have an unfair advantages over their consumers. Private student loans debit is treated differently from other types of debt and they can not be consolidated by another company. I am calling on the government to reform private student loan laws so it is fair competition for the loan insurers so as the consumer I can shop around for a better company or a better interest rate.
