This Thanksgiving it’s important to remember what goes right in education and why we should be thankful

thankful-education-thanksgivingAs most in the education arena know, it’s not always gold star stickers and apples on the desk—more often than not it’s the bad education news that gets spread like a wildfire. However, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, the editors of eSchool News thought it would be a good idea to be thankful: to take some time to name what’s good in education.

From recent legislation to national trends, education over the last year has taken major strides worthy of everyone’s pride—changes such as reinventing curriculum to implementing entirely new methods of delivering content for whole schools and districts.

And sure, we’ve heard about the tablet initiatives that face severe problems, or limited funding that poses challenges to ed-tech initiatives, but overall, teachers, administrators, and national stakeholders have never worked harder, and this Thanksgiving we’re thankful we’re in the education business.
