Susan Notes:

Take five minutes and vote to change education.

by Philip Kovacs, head, Educator Roundtable

I'm not sure if you've heard, but there's a movement of citizens inspired by the presidential campaign who are now submitting ideas for how they think the Obama Administration should change America. It's called "Ideas for Change in America."

One idea is titled: Replace No Child Left Behind With A Strong Education Policy. I thought you might be interested in getting involved and recommend you check it out. You can read more and vote for the idea by clicking the following link:


At present, this idea is losing to a movement for Esperanto and a movement for implementing national science standards.

Please take 5 minutes to log in and vote for this issue!

The top 10 ideas are going to be presented to the Obama Administration on Inauguration Day and will be supported by a national lobbying campaign run by Change.org, MySpace, and more than a dozen leading nonprofits after the
Inauguration. So each idea has a real chance at becoming policy.
