National Celebration Spotlights Individuals
Committed to Public Education

During American Education Week, November 12—16, 2018, Americans nationwide will join the National Education Association (NEA) in raising awareness about the need to provide every child with a quality public education. The celebration highlights the importance of bringing together educators, parents, students, and communities in a unified effort to build great public schools. It also reflects NEA's vision of calling upon America to provide public school students with quality schools so that they can grow and achieve in the 21st century.

To further reinforce American Education Week's theme, each day of the week will spotlight the different people who are critical in building great public schools for the nation's 50 million K-12 students. American Education Week's celebration days include:

  • Monday, November 12: Nationwide Kickoff. Across the country, schools will celebrate excellence in education by hosting kickoff events and activities.
  • Tuesday, November 13: Parents Day. Schools will invite parents into the classroom for a hands-on experience of what the day is like for their child.
  • Wednesday, November 14: Education Support Professionals Day. Individuals who provide invaluable services to schools are recognized for their outstanding work.
  • Thursday, November 15: Educator for a Day. Community leaders will be invited to serve as educators to get a glimpse of a day in the life of a school employee.
  • Friday, November 16: Substitute Educators Day. This day honors the educators who are called upon to replace regularly employed teachers.

We hope you will join us during American Education Week  by spread the word about important education issues facing educators, parents, and students in our community. and honoring the individuals who work to make public schools great for children.
