American Education Week

NEA's American Education Week (AEW) spotlights the importance of providing every child in America with a quality public education from kindergarten through college, and the need for everyone to do his or her part in making public schools great.

Our annual tag line, Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility, reflects the Association's calling upon America to provide students with quality public schools so that they can grow, prosper, and achieve in the 21st century.
In 2011, the 90th annual American Education Week will take place November 13–19. Each day during the week will spotlight a different aspect of school life:

Monday, November 14
