Today is January 24, designated by UNESCO as the International Day of Education, and the theme of this year’s celebration is: “to invest in people, prioritize education.”
The United Nations General Assembly declared an International Day of Education five years ago to celebrate the role of education in building opportunities for peace and development.
Beginning in January and continuing throughout February, classrooms across the U.S. will recognize Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the lasting impact that he and other Civil Rights leaders have made towards equality, justice, and the advancement of our nation.
Today marks the launch of registration and content availability for the fourth annual Microsoft Imagine Cup Junior (ICJ) global student competition. ICJ is an exciting opportunity for students to learn about technology and how it can be used to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.
