Why do we celebrate education holidays? If it weren’t for education, we wouldn’t know our ABC’s from our 123’s, and we don’t think The Jackson 5 would approve in the slightest. So we take a moment to thank the teachers who changed our lives and the mentors who never gave up on us. They’ve all made lasting impacts on us and our views on the world, which is why we’re so excited to take a moment to celebrate the 9 holidays commemorating education every year.
