A Ray of Hope For Educators

Well, I am back from a great vacation and feel rested and recharged.  Over the past few days as I began to catching up on my reading and correspondence it did not take long for my frustration with ed-reform and other educational issues to once again frustrate me. Then I found a ray of hope.  Matt Damons speech over the past weekend on saving our schools and his defense of teachers really made me feel better as an educator. If you have not seen these videos I have embedded them below for you to watch. I highly recommend you watch them.

  1. Great videos. Sometimes it takes a celebrity to bring light to issues we should all be paying attention to, like the fact that teachers are some of the most important, hardest working, and least respected workers in the country. Thanks for mentioning my blog post under “Related Articles.” I applaud your efforts to get teachers more techno-literate!
