Making the Grade | Another view of education in the Berkshires and Southern Vermont

Posted

Our local schools are bustling ecosystems fueled by local investments.

We drive by school buildings every day. Some of us stop to drop students off or pick them up. We might visit a few times a year to see a basketball game or school play, or every so often find ourselves voting or attending a meeting in a school gymnasium, cafeteria or library.

But unless you’re an educator or student, few of us know what goes on inside schools on a daily basis,
or consider how much schools have changed since we were students.

For this year’s Making the Grade, we invite you to take a closer look and bear witness to these timeless roles, changes, new challenges and trends.
