Happy Birthday, Diane!

birthdayOn her birthday, Diane sent a message out to her supporters on her blog.

Every day, every month, every year brings us closer to the day when the status quo collapses, and we can focus on what matters most: children-each of whom is unique-and genuine education-which means far more than test scores.

My greatest birthday present is knowing that there are students, parents, teachers, principals, administrators, school board members, and tireless citizens across the nation who are taking a stand and making a difference.

If you want to do something for me to help celebrate my birthday, today and in the future, take action: join with others (link to Network web site) to insist on doing what you know is right; speak up; write a letter to the editor or the President; live in fidelity to your professional ethics or your commitment to the well-being of  your child; think of other people’s children as if they were your own, then act. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Do not do to others what you would not want for your own child.

From all of us at the Network for Public Education, Thank you, Diane, for your tireless work on behalf of students, parents, and educators everywhere!
