News Release: Educators Rising Previews 2019-2020 Calendar

July 29, 2019


Educators Rising has planned a full year of learning experiences and engagement opportunities for our members! Here are a few highlights of what you can look forward to during the 2019-2020 school year:

  • Student discussions around the 2019 PDK Poll results. Many of the issues discussed in the yearly PDK Poll impact current students and this year, like in 2018, students will be able to participate in the conversation through virtual events and a toolkit designed to foster discussion in your classroom and community.
  • An expanded Educators Rising Week in February with activities designed to spread awareness of the benefits of becoming an educator and to recognize the accomplishments of those in Educators Rising.
  • A signing/recognition day to celebrate graduating Rising Educators as they commit to the collegiate step in their journey to the classroom.
  • Monthly discussion topics based on the research published in PDK International’s KappanMagazine designed to get students thinking about the real-world issues they’ll be facing as educators.

2019-2020 also marks the second year of the Educators Rising Honor Society for members with exceptional academic records. This year’s application process for this recognition will open in November. Educators Rising national collegiate scholarship applications will be accepted between January 6th and April 6th, 2020. There will also be a new batch of National Student Ambassadors with position applications opening in August.

Members can follow all of Educators Rising’s activities throughout the year on the Virtual Campus as well as on FacebookInstagramTwitter, and YouTube
