Veterans Day Open Comments

Veterans Day Open Comments

You're on your own this Veterans Day for news and gossip about education, though comments are open and I may lose my resolve and post some links later in the day (the news that Vallas is going to run with Quinn is pretty irresistible).

At first glance, there's not much connection between education and veterans.

But look below the surface and there connections start to emerge:

There are veterans all around schools these days -- classroom teachers, administrators, clerical and classified staff, and of course parents.

There have been various "Troops to Teachers" kinds of programs for recent and long-ago veterans -- though I've heard mixed things.

Veterans can also be found in central offices -- sometimes even leading school districts (it was very popular to hire military veterans to head school systems).
