Reminder in Midst of the Negativity in Education About What's Important!

Most of us have repeatedly been reminded by the media and politicians about how bad the state of education is in our country. They've blamed teachers. They've blamed teacher-education programs. They've blamed administrators. Usually, those who make those inferences base them on test scores, which we all know is only a small piece of what we're really about as teachers. In case you're feeling a bit down about what you do as a teacher and educator, perhaps this will provide you with a bit of an uplift in spirit. This video from the New York Times reminds us what is really important in teaching and in life.
