OneWorld Progressive Institute Applauds Great Teachers Everywhere.  On Sunday March 4, 7-8PM on Comcast Channel 26, OneWorld's Education Agenda -  “Honoring Outstanding Educators 2010-2011 is scheduled to air.  We will honor outstanding teachers from Hamden, New Haven, No. Haven, West Haven and statewide.

OneWorld Progressive Institute, Inc  Visit our education section to see some of our outstanding teachers.

Recently, Student First, Michelle Rhee's new education / student organization, sponsored a Six-Word Essay Contest.  Thousands of us across the country participated.  The initial submissions were judged and the best 30 six-word essays were selected as semi-finalists.  We then got an opportunity to select the best five of those 30.  

Below are the results of the contest as reported by the StudentsFirst organization

An astonishing 106,187 votes were cast by our members in the six-word essay contest.

The votes have been tallied, and according to our members the six-word essay that best describes what it means to be a great teacher is: "I remember her 50 years later."

Congratulations to Cullen A. of Indiana, the grand prize winner of our contest and the recipient of an iPad 2 and a $500 DonorsChoose.org gift card.

Cullen's essay reminds us all of the tremendous impact teachers have on their students to inspire them today and for years to come. Great teachers, like Cullen's teacher Miss Chase, can truly have a lasting impact on our lives.

Take a moment to show your appreciation for the great teachers you ...

I remember her 50 years later.
