We've decided to start a Myth Busters Page so that you can quickly fact check claims made about the Bammy Awards. As inaccurate claims are brought to our attention, we will publish the correct information here.

MYTH #2: There is only one "right way" to honor educators.

FACT: In the last 30 days, two exceptionally committed and passionate educators that many of us know have left their schools for good. The negative narrative around education and the discouragement many educators feel is massive, far-reaching and requires a multi-faceted approach. If significant numbers of educators feel uplifted, encouraged, validated, honored, supported and inspired by any program, the program is, by definition, contributing to the solution.

We support every single program that is having a positive impact on this problem to any degree. The notion that there is only one way to solve this problem is a myth. The notion that any positive contribution should be dismissed is misguided. People who are feeling honored should not be made to feel ashamed or duped. Spending time disparaging programs that are giving people hope and making a positive difference is questionable.
