Everyone in the education industry has experienced it. Those who leave the industry eventually come back because they miss it. Competitors sit on panels together and share what they know because of it. Most associations depend on it to stir their memberships into active engagement, and every school has teachers and administrators that live and breathe it every day.
No matter where we work inside the industry – educator, vendor, policy makers or advocates, we share a passion for learning that propels us to make a difference for today’s students.
Although there are certainly people and companies that become wealthy in the K-12 world, accumulating wealth is not the driving force that brings us together nor keeps our interest over the course of a career.
