Teacher: As we begin a new school year…

Teacher: It’s hard to imagine our classrooms without the leadership of California’s educators.

Teacher: We know what really works when it comes to improving student learning.

Teacher: It’s why we’ve led efforts to turn around hundreds of lower-performing schools.

Teacher: And why we work with parents to help their kids at home.

Teacher: We know our schools need smaller class sizes and art and music to provide a well-rounded education…

Teacher: …rather than more standardized tests.

Teacher: We need career training that prepares everyone to compete in today’s economy…

Teacher: …and college should be affordable to all students.

Teacher: So, if you have a question about your local school…

Teacher: …or education in California.

Teacher: Ask a teacher.

Dean Vogel: This is Dean Vogel, a classroom teacher and president of the California Teacher’s Association, urging you to ask a teacher about our schools.  And you’ll hear how quality public schools and colleges are building stronger local communities and a better California for all of us.
