I’m here at the National Press Club. Which is fitting, because in class I started every day with current events. Every morning, my kids could get extra credit if they reported on an article they read in this thing called a “newspaper”. Remember “news”? Remember “paper”? Good times.
I represent 3 million educators – teachers and adjunct faculty and bus drivers and para-professionals and counselors and librarians – who wake up every morning knowing how important our work is.
We know it’s so important that we’re supposed to do something about making sure that our students – preschool to graduate school – have everything they need to make their lives everything they should be.
Our work is the future of… everything.
