American Education Week

American Education Week, Classroom, NEAHow can we help our children be successful in school? November 16-20, 2015 is American Education Week. It is imperative that parents form a close partnership with educators, particularly in the public education sector. We are so fortunate to live in a country where everyone, regardless of race, creed, gender or financial status have the freedom to get a good education.

This week all Americans have the opportunity to celebrate and support public education, while honoring individuals who are helping to make a difference by ensuring that every child gets a quality education. This year’s American Education Week’s theme is “Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility.” Here is a lineup of weeklong celebrations and observances in education:

Monday, November 16: Kickoff Day
Tuesday, November 17: Parents Day
Wednesday, November 18: Education Support Professionals Day
Thursday, November 19: Educator for a Day
Friday, November 20: Substitute Educators Day
