Public Schools Week 2019

Join Learning First Alliance and Our Partners to Celebrate Public Schools

Public Schools Week 2019 celebrated our nation’s public schools, our students and the many school professionals who work to help students achieve their greatest potential. A broad group of educators—representing 10 million administrators, teachers, specialists, teacher educators and school board members—marked the week with events and outreach to their communities. In Washington, a bipartisan group of lawmakers spoke out on the importance of a strong public education system for our country’s future economic strength.

NEW Podcast: Richard Long interviews three exemplary school leaders (the National School Counselor of the Year, a school community relations expert, and a National Superintendent of the Year finalist) in this podcast.

Capitol Hill events included:
Passage of H.Res. 254, sponsored by Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin, which supported the designation of March 25-29 as Public Schools Week.
Passage of S.Res.126, sponsored by Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, which also supported the designation of Public Schools Week.
On March 27, The Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) hosted a briefing in honor of Public Schools Week titled “Civil Rights Protections in Public Schools for Students with Disabilities.”
