Schools

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, along with Gov. Martin O’Malley and NEA President Dennis Van Roekel, will visit Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Md., as a part of NEA’s celebration of American Education Week (AEW). They will address the need to attract more bright young people into the teaching profession, and then they will take questions from students.

American Education Week, held November 14-20, honors teachers and support professionals who have dedicated themselves to the education of young people. Celebrated the week prior Thanksgiving, AEW began in 1921 as a way to generate public support for education at a time when illiteracy was a major problem.

Thursday, November 18, 2010, 9:15– 10:30 a.m.

American Education Week’s 2010 tagline, Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility, is a reminder that all Americans must do their part to help create great public schools for every student.
