The Gift of Public School

I read a great article by Albemarle, MD Superintendent Pam Moran entitled, "11 Reasons I am Thankful for Public Education in the United States." While the statistics and facts are powerful, it was Mrs. Moran's ending that grabbed me.
11. America’s dreamers created the reality that all young people, regardless of class, gender, race, ethnicity or religion are afforded the right to a free, public education. This gift, I do not take for granted.

Public School is a wonderful gift to the American people. Nationally and locally, we do fantastic things for so many. I am proud to be a principal of an American public school.
