Students need voters to pass Measure A

Editor:
My name is Louisa and I am in fourth grade at Edison School. I am writing on behalf of Measure A. Measure A is a measure to pay teachers at the county average. I think this is important because all of the teachers at my school are amazing. 

Not only have they taught me math and reading, but they have also taught me all the skills I need to live. I also hope teachers will stay if they get paid more because right now we lose 20 percent of our teachers every year to districts where they can make more money. 

My teachers mean the world to me. It would be horrible to lose any of them. If you would like more information you can go to www.strongschoolsforalameda.org. Please vote “yes” on Measure A for teachers!
