American Education Week
November 11-17, 2012
NEA's American Education Week spotlights the importance of providing every child in America with a quality public education from kindergarten through college and the need for everyone to do his or her part in making public schools great.
You’ll find a American Education Week pull-out poster in the fall issue of Something Better or download now. MNEA will also be printing a supply of bookmarks. You can pick up a supply for your classroom at an MNEA Regional Office or print now.
NEA’s annual tagline, Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility, reflects the Association's calling upon America to provide students with quality public schools so that they can grow, prosper, and achieve in the 21st century.
In 2012, the 91st annual American Education Week will take place Nov. 11-17. Each day during the week spotlights a different aspect of school life.

Substitute Educators Day
Friday of American Education Week
Substitute Educators Day was established in 2003 by the NEA Representative Assembly. Substitute teachers have a vital role in public schools. They have an ability to go into a classroom of strange faces and keep students on task in the absence of the regular classroom teacher. Encourage increased respect for substitutes by celebrating Substitute Educators Day, the Friday of American Education Week.
