The Idaho Education Association is proud to join with the National Education Association and supporters of public education everywhere in observing the 94th American Education Week, November 16-20.
This week has been set aside to honor and recognize the valuable contributions of everyone who contributes to helping students succeed in the classroom and in life. Idaho is fortunate to have many dedicated teachers, Education Support Professionals, parents, administrators and community members who go the extra mile to make our public schools a place where children can learn and grow.
