Day 174

Being in the academic industry, and the field of education... my interest is always piqued when any type of educational news or movement is raised in the media.

I'd opted to volunteer online today, because Chandni was out of town and logged into after being away for quite a while.

Imagine my excitement, when Care2 - asked for members to sign a petition targeted to Education Secretary Arne Duncan to adopt national academic achievement standards, and maintain uniformity nationwide.

I signed the petition and gave them a slew of reasons as to why it was important to do so from my experience in working with students from across the nation.

I was tempted to look into several other petitions, but I opted to Click to Donate instead!
I'll give you a rundown:

Together we've provided 738 months of child sponsorship.
