World Teachers’ Day

As I was reading some articles about World Teachers’ Day online, I stumbled upon this article below. I was simply overwhelmed by what I saw. It’s one thing to read about cultural and economic differences in schools, but it was much more powerful to actually see a picture. As they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” These photos certainly highlight the privileges that children in the United States enjoy. We can get so caught up in focusing on the areas in education we should improve upon that we take for granted what we already have that others do not. I hope you find the article – and photos – as fascinating as I did.

    That is very true. We take what we have for granted. I thought that when I read Malala Yousafzai’s story. What we have needs improvement, but so does education all around the world.
    These pictures tell many thousands of words. Thanks for sharing.
