Our young learners and global citizens are capable of solving the challenges of tomorrow! The key to being a problem-solver, innovator and critical thinker is to be educated and able to distinguish fact from fiction. Such training begins at a very young age.

New Series: Education Matters
The Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Education has created a new series called “Education Matters,” a monthly bulletin, in which they will share with parents, students, educators, faith-based and community representatives, and others key information and issues around education. The information shared will contribute to creating a culture of education excellence in the various communities.
The first “Education Matters” bulletin, Children’s Brain Development, can also be accessed on their website under the Resource tab at http://www.ed.gov/edblogs/
