Get Social for American Education Week

Here's how you can use social media to spread the word and celebrate your school and your colleagues November 13-17.

November 13-17 marks the National Education Association’s 96th annual celebration of American Education Week. This year we want to use social media to demonstrate that our public schools are here for each and every student — that no matter the circumstance, everyone is welcome and all deserve the support, tools, and time they need to learn. To join us, just snap a picture that represents your pride in public schools and post it to your social channels using #PublicSchoolsForAll. We will highlight your examples across our NEA platforms and social media accounts.

 Whatever you post to celebrate the week, be sure to use the hashtags #AEW2017 and #PublicSchoolsForAll.
