It's American Education Week: a time to recognize the importance of education and celebrate our public schools. No matter what type of school you go to or teach at, I think we can all get behind efforts to ensure quality education for everyone, and appreciate those who support each student's success at school: from teachers and parents, to administrators and bus drivers, to maintenance staff and instructional assistants — to the one student in your Spanish class who always creates those super helpful Quizlet sets.

This week, learn a bit about the history of education in America and explore from there. To learn more about AEW and ways to celebrate, visit the National Education Association's website. And remember to thank all those people who support educational opportunities and your success at school!
