    American Education Week

    American Education Week is being held from November 16 through November 22, 2014. During American Education Week everyone has the opportunity to highlight and celebrate the work of educators and those who are helping that all children receive a quality education. The week was created in 1921 to help raise public awareness of the importance of education. The National Education Association found it alarming that 25 percent of the country’s World War I draftees were illiterate. The year after the week was created the United States Office of Education joined and since then there are several organizations that cosponsor the week.

    In recognition of American Education Week we are featuring faculty and graduates who are making a difference through teaching. The week-long celebration by the National Education Association is featuring a special event or observance each day. Anyone interested in learning more about American Education Week can visit the National Education Association’s website.
