During the 89th annual American Education Week, Americans nationwide will join the National Education Association in raising awareness about the need to provide every child with a quality public education.

To help plan American Education Week's celebration days, NEA is offering a free, online toolkit, complete with promotional materials, activity ideas, and downloadable templates. The toolkit and additional information is available at
