Dump Duncan and Ed Reform that only benefits corporate profits. Follow the money to see who is behind the insanity! Linda Ortega | J U L Y 3 AB 1444 is such an important bill. As a second-grade teacher, it's painful to see the frustration in my first-grade colleagues when they have to retain students who aren't making progress because parents didn't send their children to kindergarten or preschool. With the passage of this bill everyone wins! @Roberto63 | J U L Y 4 #NEARA14 just passed a new business item calling for the resignation of Sec. Duncan. Very proud of @CATeachersAssoc Prez Dean Vogel. @dwablog | J U L Y 3 #NEARA14 now debating new business item A — calling for an end to toxic tests in US education. Yay! Very positive response from body. @CommonCoreCafe Proud of our CTA Pres. for supporting all students regardless of their immigration status. #CTATopTweet Dump Duncan: CTA President Dean Vogel fires up the NEA Representative Assembly calling for U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan's resignation.

We have the answers. Let us share them. @MaryBarela1 | J U L Y 3 To reformers, if you care about students, use your resources to support teaching & learning instead of attacking public schools. 7 V O L U M E 1 9 I S S U E 1
