Wow! You’re one of more than 90,000 people who have signed our petition demanding that Time magazine apologize for calling teachers the “rotten apples” in our schools.
At 3 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, Oct. 30, I’ll be joining UFT President Michael Mulgrew along with educators, parents and allies to deliver the petitions to Time magazine’s headquarters in Manhattan.
We’re using a platform called Thunderclap to simultaneously post across social media. When you join, you can choose to post to Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. Whichever you choose, Thunderclap will automatically post for you at 3 p.m.–just as the petitions are being delivered.
We’re hoping to reach 100,000 petition signers. Once you’ve signed up for the Thunderclap, will you share the petition one more time with your friends and family via social media?
Educators perform one of the hardest jobs in America and deserve to be treated with respect. Instead, Time magazine calls them “rotten apples.” Let’s make sure Time‘s editors hear us loud and clear.
