Who are Educators for Obama?
Thousands of teachers and education support professionals from across the country have already signed up to be Educators for Obama.
“Barack Obama is the only candidate committed to protecting public education and the middle class, and he needs our help,” said Summer Hill, a teacher from Pennsylvania. “But with so much at stake for our schools in this year’s presidential election, my students need even more from me. That’s why I volunteered as an Educator for Obama.”
