Voices on teaching: “The thing that saved me was school”

Disclaimer: This initiative initially was launched and coordinated by the Raise Your Hand Texas Foundation, which in 2022 merged with and became the Charles Butt Foundation.

John B. King Jr. served in President Obama’s cabinet as the 10th U.S. Secretary of Education and is now the President and CEO of The Education Trust. And where does he credit his success? His public school teachers.

Today kicks off Teacher Appreciation Week, and we want to thank and honor teachers. Every day this week, we will release a new Voices on Teaching video showcasing diverse perspectives on the importance of the teaching profession.
