American Education Week 2017

American Education Week presents all Americans with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate public education and honor individuals who are making a difference in ensuring that every child receives a quality education.

Communities across the nation will join the National Education Association Nov. 13-17, 2017, to celebrate the 96th annual American Education Week.
