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 tagline, 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 2009, the 88th annual American Education Week will take place November 15-21. Each day during the week spotlights a different aspect of school life:
Monday, November 16: Open House Day.
Tuesday, November 17: Parents Day.
Wednesday, November 18: Education Support Professionals Day.
Thursday, November 19: Educator for a Day.
Friday, November 20: Substitute Educators Day.
