Education by the Numbers

August is traditionally the month when summer vacation ends and students return to school (or begin a new stage of their lives with college, trade/vocational school, etc).

“You can teach a student a lesson for a day;
but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity,
he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”
—Clay Bedford

On a global scale, the education of children and adult students is important to every nation.

In the United States each year, an estimated 74.1 million students go to public or private schools, from pre-K to high school to higher education, and attend classes taught by 3.7 million teachers. And speaking of higher education, American women attending college outnumber men, 10.5 million to 7.9 million.

Today’s digital age means that students are integrating social media into their learning experiences, with more than 2/3 of all students using mobile educational apps in the classroom. Teachers utilize Facebook and YouTube to reach their kids, and the majority of teachers consider social media to be a valuable educational tool.

What Are People Saying About Greeting Card Universe?
“We are thrilled that we found GCU. I picked up our 3rd order today at Target, and had one sent directly to the addressee: both methods work great. I’m sure we’ll have some (such as Christmas cards) shipped to us in the future. The huge variety and inventory of the cards is truly astounding. And the quality and economical aspects make choosing them a no-brainer. Just wish we had found GCU sooner, and we are spreading the word to family and friends. Keep up the great work.” – Linda in Franklin, Tennessee, July 26, 2012
