Celebrate our nation’s public schools during “Public Schools Week” March 25 through 29, 2019. Public education is the foundation of a 21st-century democracy and 90 percent of American children attend public schools. Public education is the major vehicle for preserving the basic values of a democratic system of government and must be supported and strengthened.

Inclusive and safe high-quality public schools are where children learn to think critically, problem solve, and build relationships. Public schools should provide an environment where all students can succeed beginning in their earliest years, regardless of who they are or where they live, and efforts should be supported to advance equity and excellence in public education. Every child has the right to an education that helps them reach their full potential and to attend schools that offer a high-quality educational experience with stable, equitable, predictable, and adequate funding for every student in America.
Please join us in celebrating our public education system March 25-29, 2019 and beyond!
