Atlanta Public Schools joins national education groups representing principals, superintendents, parents and other civic organizations for Public Schools Week, March 12-16, 2018, which celebrates the achievements our public schools are making in this country and the critical roles they play in developing future generations of successful students.
As part of Public Schools Week, 50 national organizations have issued a joint statement in support of public education to promote the positive impact public schools have on our nation’s young people and the communities in which they live. To maintain this momentum, Members of Congress supporting this movement will share success stories about the schools and students from their respective districts throughout the week.
Advocates of public education believe to create stronger communities it starts with each of us working collaboratively to create stronger public schools. A high-quality education provides students with the skills to give them choices in life. In every school, no matter their economic status, school cluster or zip code, students are equipped with the academic, career, and social-emotional skills to achieve. Public Schools Week celebrates the contributions made by America’s public schools and the potential of our schools to continue to change lives and communities for the better.
On Thursday, March 15, from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (EDT), members of Congress, educators, students, parents and other supporters of public education across the country are encouraged to join the conversation via Twitter (#PublicSchoolsWeek) and share why they support this initiative and the outstanding work accomplished by public schools.
