PSEA celebrates American Education Week

To the Editor:

American Education Week is Nov. 14-18.

Every year, right before Thanksgiving, we take time as a nation to celebrate our public schools and to say thank you to all the Pennsylvanians who come together to make our schools strong.

That includes educators and support professionals as well as students, parents, guardians, families, and community leaders. We are all partners in the important work of educating the next generation of Pennsylvanians.

Every day, the doors to our public schools are thrown open to children of all backgrounds, abilities, and incomes. Hardworking teachers, paraprofessionals, and support staff work with students to meet their educational goals. And school counselors, nurses, and mental health professionals are there to attend to our students mental and emotional health needs.

So, thank you to the educators and support professionals, to the parents, guardians, and families, to the elected and community leaders who work together to make Pennsylvania’s public schools among the best in the nation. Our schools couldn’t do all that they do without your support.
