A new consortium of educators, schools and educational associations has come together with the Great American Teach In, which gives a voice to the Americans most invested in the education system: students, teachers, parents and community leaders.

“When it comes to education, what are the truths you hold self-evident?,” said Chris Lehmann, founder of the Great American Teach In and Science Leadership Academy Principal. “Let's identify the good we want to retain, the change we want to see, and mark the steps to make it all happen.”

Visit declarationofeducation.com for resources for educators and information on how to get involved. The event will take place May 10th.
