HuffPost Table Talk: Valentine’s Day In The Classroom

Every Friday, the Huffington Post editors highlight one of the most compelling news stories of the week — a story to spark a lively discussion at your family dinner table.

On Monday we celebrate Valentine’s Day, which was established by Pope Gelasius I in the 5th century and didn’t become associated with love and romance until the high middle ages when Chaucer first began the tradition of composing poems about love to mark the day. Now we know it as a holiday devoted to love and affection, often featuring romantic gifts, poems, celebrations, sweets and flowers. In our nation’s schools, however, it’s a different story.

Visit The Huffington Post for more on this week’s download, which deals with Valentine’s Day in the classroom.
