To understand educators, you must also understand the challenges they face, and you cannot accomplish that without taking a broad view of education across the world. This is a difficult thing to achieve. By the time you reach adulthood, your view of what education means has been indelibly colored by your personal experiences, and it takes a great deal of thought to see beyond that narrow perspective.

Apples, coffee cups, pencils, and rulers: What do these things have in common? Ding, ding, ding — they’re gifts given to teachers every single year. This Teacher Appreciation Week, you can do better by giving teachers something that they’re truly interested in.

There are 87,198 public schools in America, serving almost 48 million public school students. In this article, I’ve broken down the different school district sizes to discuss what types of businesses match their needs. At MDR, we consider a district large if it enrolls over 10,000 students. A medium district enrolls 2,500 to 9,999 students, and a small district has less than 2,500 students enrolled.
