The New Jersey School Boards Association joins a coalition of national education groups to celebrate Public Schools Week, Feb. 26 to March 1, which is an annual, weeklong celebration to honor the invaluable contributions and achievements of educators, administrators, board members and support professionals in our public schools.

Led by the Learning First Alliance, a coalition of 13 national education groups with a collective membership exceeding 10 million, Public Schools Week 2024 invites the education community, parents, families, lawmakers and others to shine a spotlight on our nation’s public schools and the dedicated individuals behind them.

Research consistently demonstrates that parents and community members are largely supportive of their local public schools, recognizing the vital role educators play in preparing children for success in an evolving world. Public Schools Week aims to showcase the dynamic things happening in public schools, how they are responding to current challenges, and the invaluable lessons learned, ultimately contributing to the ongoing improvement of K-12 education.

Public Schools Week is supported by members of the Learning First Alliance; leading education groups, representing more than 10 million members, including the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education; AASA: The School Superintendents Association; American Federation of Teachers; American School Counselor Association; Consortium for School Networking; Learning Forward; National Association of Elementary School Principals; National Association of Secondary School Principals; National Education Association; National PTA; National School Boards Association and National School Public Relations Association.
