Teachers, can you spare a dime?
Let’s all get behind this worthy charity that will clearly benefit all educators…
Happy Friday, Y’all!
Jac de Haan sets me straight regarding how confused I’ve been about the motivation of large corporations to sponsor teaching academies. . . Regardless of what you believe the motivation behind sponsoring such events may be, these companies are recognizing that many teachers put countless unpaid hours into professional development and investing hundreds of millions of dollars in education.

I take back everything I said about educators being confused about how this whole thing works.

(or just wait until later…)
