Our mission is to create a dialogue with Bill and Melinda Gates in order to achieve a democratic influence on public education through the voices of education researchers, professors of education,administrators, school board members, professional teachers, parents, students, and community members. We would appreciate Bill and Melinda’s feedback and want to influence their education policy and financial decisions by adding democratic voices to create meaningful relevant education for children.
While the Gates Foundation pours billions of dollars to influence public education policy that impact “other peoples’ children”, there hasn’t been a dialogue to share how these policies impact children, teachers, schools, and communities. This page is designed to give teachers, parents, and students a chance to share the impact of foundation and education reforms on them.
We are public school teachers. We are teacher leaders. We are teacher activists. We are activists for social justice through public education. We are teachers with questions. We are teachers who no longer want to live behind the Gates. We are teachers who are not funded by the Gates Foundation.
We invite you to write to Bill and Melinda Gates and we invite them to engage in dialogue with real public school teachers here.
Please comment here: Comments to this page will be collected and sent to the Gates Foundation.
