"Think about this: Seventy percent of the 1.4 million jobs in computer science will go unfilled because of a lack of computer science college graduates. We can turn that around really quickly if we get girls interested." - Girls Who Code founder Reshma Saujani

“Schools and their teachers are a stabilizing force in society and a fierce promoter and protector of our democracy…[they] must always stay open because teachers doors stay open, saying come in, lets learn, let’s hope, lets begin dreaming.” - Shanna Peeples, 2015 National Teacher of the Year

“My students, survivors of deep and debilitating trauma, have shaped the kind of teacher I am ... They have taught me to never make a promise I can’t keep because so many already have learned to see the world through suspicious eyes. To be the best teacher to them, I have to remember this and honor their background. I remember so I can gain their trust because I want them to read and write their way out of where they are.” - Shanna Peeples, 2015 National Teacher of the Year

Since the enactment of No Child Left Behind in 2002, test scores have been used to punish, close, and remove resources from the schools that needed them the most. And what did this punitive, one-size-fits-all approach to accountability get us? Rising opportunity gaps and students, educators, and schools that are penalized rather than supported.
