MREA encourages members to engage their staff, students, parents and other community members during national Public Schools Week, March 12-16, and can use the  I Love Public Education toolkit as a resource.

In addition to key messaging, this kit contains a social media guide that we encourage you to use and share with your colleagues and the community.  View sample social media posts, email and newsletter messaging, and press release to get started.

The events the week of March 12 are intended to help highlight the critical role public schools play as the bedrock of our civic society and their work to prepare students to be successful, contributing members of their local, national, and global communities.

The centerpiece of this week is the introduction of a resolution signed by 50 national organizations in support of public education.
