Elementary school students waking at 2 a.m. with nightmares about high-stakes tests. Middle schoolers stuck in crowded classrooms in underfunded schools. College grads whose reward for surviving it all is a lifetime of debt.

Powerful special interests see schools only as sources of potential profit, and they blame the same hard-working teachers who buy supplies out of their own pockets for all of the problems in American education. The last thing they want is for millions of Americans to see this video.

Thanks for all you do.
