Happy Thanksgiving, readers. This year, the Getting smart team would like to take a moment to break from our regularly scheduled content to express our sincere gratitude for all that we have.
We are thankful for the chance we have to explore new ways to build a smarter, happier and more equitable society.
Thankful for the teachers, principals, administrators, superintendents, EdTech providers and ed-focused organizations working hard to improve education for students everywhere.
Thankful for philanthropic funders with a laser focus on funding innovations that will ensure equitable opportunities for all of our learners and their families.
Thankful for the wonderful partners that we have been fortunate to learn from and support.
Thankful for the schools we get to visit who are providing high-quality learning experiences for their students.
Thankful for our guest bloggers, columnists and teacher blogger team for learning with us and helping us learn more from their writing.
Thankful for our families and friends.
Most of all, we are thankful for you, for joining us on our journey. We wish you the happiest of holiday seasons and hope that you’ll join us again tomorrow as we continue our efforts to explore the cutting edge of education.
