Public Schools Week is an annual week-long celebration dedicated to honoring the invaluable contributions and achievements of educators and education advocates in our public schools and the communities they serve.

Led by the Learning First Alliance, a coalition of 13 national education groups with a collective membership exceeding 10 million, Public Schools Week invites the education community, parents, students and others to join us in spotlighting our nation’s public schools and the dedicated individuals working in and supporting them.

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating our public schools and those across the nation that serve to support and develop future generations of leaders, innovators and citizens!
