Amer­ica’s pub­lic-school ed­u­ca­tors and school sup­port pro­fes­sion­als pre­pare our stu­dents to tackle the chal­lenges of to­mor­row and suc­ceed. They teach stu­dents to read great books and be­come math wizards.

They in­tro­duce chil­dren to the won­ders of his­tory and sci­ence. They stay af­ter school to help stu­dents get the ex­tra help they need. They chal­lenge stu­dents to do things they never thought they could — write a poem, cre­ate an al­go­rithm, play a Bach sonata.

The class­room is where stu­dents learn to think, solve prob­lems, and co­op­er­ate with each other. Th­ese skills are crit­i­cal in shap­ing the fu­ture of Amer­ica.

Dur­ing Amer­i­can Ed­u­ca­tion Week Nov. 12-16, our pub­lic-school ed­u­ca­tors and sup­port pro­fes­sion­als are proud to in­vite par­ents and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to see first­hand all the amaz­ing things hap­pen­ing in our schools. I want to thank ev­ery­one in this com­mu­nity for sup­port­ing your lo­cal pub­lic schools.

Whether it’s thank­ing a teacher, read­ing to kinder­gart­ners, or talk­ing with high school stu­dents about your work, your sup­port makes all the dif­fer­ence. And, to­gether, we’re mak­ing great pub­lic schools for ev­ery child.

– Do­lores McCracken, pres­i­dent, Penn­syl­va­nia State Ed­u­ca­tion
