Best wishes for the New Year !
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!

In the spirit of the ancient Babylonians who made promises to their gods at the start of each year and the Romans who began each year by making promises to the god Janus for whom the month of January is named; I invite you, on behalf of the National Education Service Company to join us in a collective resolution for 2014. Let's resolve to work together to improve the lives of all of school children by fighting against unfair funding cuts, bad policy decisions, and other challenges that continue to threaten our schools and our children's futures.
N.E.S.C.O. resolves to encourage all State Governors and Education Commissioners to commit to increase funding for public education in their state. It is time for all schools to be guaranteed the funding necessary to have comprehensive programs in all areas of common instruction. Students should not be deprived of educational opportunities simply by their place of residence.
N.E.S.C.O. resolves to promote the formation of educational policies developed with the advise and consent of professional experienced educators who understand curriculum design, differentiated learning and effective assessment procedures.
N.E.S.C.O. resolves to call for improved teacher training as the best method for improving student learning. Teachers must commit to on-going professional development and schools must provide the time, means and money to insure such training. The content of professional development must be based on methods and materials identified by both teachers and department heads, not by administrators or board members who do not teach.

Imagine if all of us commit to these resolutions! Our individual efforts and collective power would truly change education for the better, improving the lives of our children and the future of the profession.
