"Remove U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan" sign now

We, the People of the United States of America are petitioning President, Barack Obama to remove U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Instead fill the position of U.S. Secretary of Education with a highly qualified educator as the federal government through its Race To The Top grants expects a highly qualified public school teacher and administrator in the nation's schools. It is incumbent on you the President to lead through example to recruit, select and appoint an individual more prepared through education, credentials and experience to occupy one of the most important cabinet positions in your administration. Secondly, the vision and mission Mr. Duncan purports through the Race To The Top funding of public education have caused havoc throughout the educational system in the nation as it seems to exacerbate the tensions that exist in competing models of educational reforms. We the people deserve the most highly qualified educational leader to occupy the position of Secretary of Education for which Mr. Arne Duncan himself has called for as one of the criteria for the Race To The Top Funds. Mr. Duncan set the bar high for the nation, a highly qualified teacher and administrator in the public schools, we the people deserve to have a highly qualified U.S. Secretary of Education. His B.A. Degree in Sociology does not qualify Mr. Duncan to be the U.S. Secretary of Education.

    Under this Democratic administration, public school teachers could go the way of professors, most of whom now work for less than minimum wage. Charter schools are about busting the teachers' unions, which ensure fulltime work, living wage, benefits and so

    Bringing a business model to education leaves out the human factor of kids and families. Until you address the whole picture (which no one ever has) you are just more of the same. Teach for one year and then you'll have some credibility with me!

    I am an ardent supporter of your campaign, Mr. President, and a teacher in an inner city school. The answers to fixing education are elusive, at best. It would be easy for a high school teacher to blame lower level teachers when he has students who read a
