Monday kicks off Teacher Appreciation Week

As policy makers and politicians debate reforms for education, they often point to the role of teachers. Teachers can be blamed for students’ shortcomings, and they don’t always receive the resources they need to succeed, or the acclaim they deserve. Monday kicks off a week of giving classroom leaders the appreciation they deserve. National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel outlines the challenges teachers face, and how they can best reach students. (Photo: Flickr/lostintheredwoods)
