Linda Darling-Hammond is a friend of libraries, an advocate for the equal education of children with disabilities, a respected teacher, and she’s being considered for Secretary of Education.

According to Californians for Justice, this “Stanford professor and a leader in education reform . . . is not only respected among academics, she also has broad support among grassroots community organizers and educators because of her dedication to progressive education reform, and her commitment to closing the opportunity gap for low-income students and students of color.” Californians for Justice is calling on Obama to appoint Linda Darling-Hammond as Secretary of Education. Act Now to support her appointment.

Then, email Obama.
