I’ve got a question for the two Presidential candidates.

How much is a teacher worth to a child who would be a statistic if she/he didn’t teach?

Obama for Teachers!

Our teachers are underpaid and overworked.

When will the powers that be recognize that the education of our children is more important than the deployment of our troops overseas?

If we don’t educate America on what is important for the future of our great society, then we will fall down to the levels of those emerging countries trying to survive austerity.

Is the salary of a novice teacher enough to provide for her family of four?

The typical hourly rate for a teacher living in Chicago is roughly $23 per hour, and the cost of living wage is $20.35.   Living Wage Calculator

There is not much leftover to do any other non-essential activities that a family of two adults and two children would enjoy doing while living in a metropolitan area.

This Presidential election is very important for many reasons, but especially because we as a nation need to make sure that our teachers and other educators are paid more than just a living wage. They need a salary that is worthy of the knowledge that they impart to our youth.

Make your vote count and vote for our teachers.

Vote for the candidate who truthfully addresses your concerns.
