Tuesday is National Teacher Day, part of Teacher Appreciation Week, which has taken on special resonance in recent years as many teachers feel increasingly dishonored by policymakers who have put them at the center of controversial reforms.
So what do teachers get during this commemoration? Some companies offer discounts to teachers for various items, and messages of thanks and appreciation to teachers — including from some of the very policymakers who have upset teachers — are posted on social media.
Dunno about you, but I could do without the platitudes and lip service we get during Teacher Appreciatino Week from the very same policymakers and politicians who spend the rest of the year teacher-bashing.
Do you like the 20% off coupons we get during Teacher Appreciation Week or could you too live without Teacher Appreciation Week?
