Statement by Secretary Duncan on American Education Week

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

"As American Education Week comes to a close for 2013, let's re-dedicate ourselves to focusing every week of the year on the values -- and value -- of public education, the contributions of educators, and the aspirations of our nation's students. This is an opportunity to celebrate public education and honor those who are making a difference to be sure that all of our nation's children are ready for college and career. I applaud the National Education Association (NEA) for their efforts to celebrate and call attention to the education professionals and paraprofessionals who make such a difference every day.

"The NEA has done critical work raising awareness of the need for our country to have a professional teaching force that is ready to meet students' learning needs on day one in the classroom. It should encourage us all to be a part of the annual celebration of American Education Week and to raise our hands "for student success.'

"There is nothing more important than supporting America's schools; they do our country's most important work."
