Two Great School Stories Recognized Publicly

It’s great to see that at least sometimes good schools and teachers are appreciated in the press. Here are two great school stories recognized publicly.

First, a whole school district in Hartsville, SC, is working with community partners and a retired corporate CEO to implement a whole-child approach to kids’ learning (developed by child psychologist James Comer).

And first-grade teacher Carol Hines in Farmersville, PA, gets lauded in the local paper as she had her students study about, write letters to, and finally interview a local marine corporal who served in Afghanistan.

We are always curious about how these stories come to light. Anyone connected with a school can get it started, of course. But it sure would help if teachers were taking the lead.
