John Kuhn is school superintendent at Perrin-Whitt Consolidated ISD in Texas.  In 2011, he wrote an open letter to his legislators pleading for support for public education.  His letter was modeled after William B. Travis’s famous epistle from the Alamo and has come to be called “The Alamo Letter.”'

Here is a link to the letter: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/answer-sheet/educational-leadership/texas-superintendent-issues-pl.html

The letter went viral on the internet and Kuhn was invited to speak to 13,000 Texas teachers from the steps of the state capitol in Austin at the Save Texas Schools march.  This was just the beginning.  Here is a link to that speech:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFgrt95OD0U

Editorial writers, commentators, educators, and parents all over the US have responded to John’s call to save our schools from the scourge of standardized testing and low and skewed expectations of our students and teachers.  He has also written extensively on issues related to school accountability and school funding.
