About Public Schools Week
NSBA joined the Learning First Alliance (LFA), American Federation of Teachers, National Education Association, National PTA and other supporting education organizations, in celebrating public schools during Public Schools Week, Feb. 22-26, 2021.
Public schools educate nine of every 10 students. The great equalizer for children, they have lifted generations of people out of poverty and from middle to higher income, helping to set young adults on the path to a fulfilling life.
Public Schools Week honors the 50.8 million students, 3.2 million teachers, and hundreds of thousands of specialists, administrators, and support staff working in public schools today.
