“India school boycotted after 'rape'”
“Tears for the Border Children”
This is just a sample of some of the main headlines in the news today and I am looking for the proverbial “silver lining”. Has anyone noticed that very little positive news is getting much in the way of press? Has anyone noticed the violence and hate that is spewing from all corners, all sides, and from all sectors (so it seems)?
I am setting a challenge for all educators: for the next week, let us report positive news only, let us show the world the positive power of education.
Tell us about a great school year, a great lesson plan, the positive gains of your students, tell us something that can alleviate this darkness.
I look forward to hearing your positive stories!
