Nine out of 10 students in America attend public schools. Public Schools Week is a national celebration to highlight the great things happening in our nation’s public schools as well as bring attention to the critical issues facing our schools, students and educators. This initiative shows the strength and potential of public schools in a democratic society. Public Schools Week 2020 will be held February 24-28, 2020.
Nine out of 10 students in America attend a public school. That’s why it’s more important than ever before that every student have access to an amazing, wonderful public education.
This week is the time to say, “thank you,” and congratulate all of those who are in public schools, but also to say, “don’t ever take us for granted.”
Local leadership and advocacy for public education is critically important to the success, and the continued success, of this vital American institution: America’s public schools.
We are public school proud because we firmly believe that public education in America today is the best that it has ever been.
Events can include just about any type of activity that promotes public schools—past events have included a book distribution drive, speeches at civic meetings and pizza parties for parents and students.
