What's news this week in Crittenden County...

Twenty-first century learning is not just a catchy phrase used by the local school system, it’s a way of life. In fact, most educators across the nation are on board with the new academic lifestyle. Simply put, 21st century learning incorporates into academics ever-present, ever-changing technologies and the new global mindset. While reading, writing and arithmetic are still the foundation of education, learning has been transformed by the world in which we live. Teachers are different. Students have changed. Last year was a turning point for this new era of education in Crittenden County Schools.
