Visualize an elementary school classroom teacher assigning a project in civics to their students to create a petition at the White House site for any relevant subject that interests them. Then picture the presentation of the petition assignment in crayon.

At the White House petition site:

We petition the Obama Administration to:

Keep Andrew Jackson on the American $20 Dollar Bill.

Recently, a Group had voted to change our nations $20 Dollar Bill image to a Woman. The vote is favoring Harriet Tubman for the Place of Andrew Jackson. Our nations Currency should not be changed to make a statement for Civil rights. We need to Keep our Nations Currency just as it is.

Because our currency never changes?
