Donna L and 24,999 Other People Have a Message for Arne Duncan

I was at school when the White House petition reached its 25,000 signature and helped students’ researching for a seventh grade debate with a huge smile on my face. One of my seniors wanted to be the 25,000th signature but our slow school networks slowed him down so that “Donna L.” beat him to the honor. A special education teacher, a school secretary, my teaching assistant, students, my husband, a technology person and a young tech intern from New York City all signed.

Librarians responded, AASL and ALA responded–but our advocates were there for us—and that is the BIG message.
