SYRACUSE — Wawasee Community School Corporation joins national education groups representing teachers, principals, superintendents, parents and other civic organizations for Public Schools Week, March 12-16, celebrating the achievements public schools are making in this country and the critical roles they play in developing future generations of successful students.
As part of Public Schools Week, 50 national organizations will introduce a joint statement in support of public education Thursday, March 15, to promote the positive impact public schools have on the nation’s young people and the communities in which they live. To maintain this momentum, members of Congress supporting this movement will share success stories about the schools and students from their respective districts.

“Communities are stronger and schools are better when we work in unison to support them and the axis of that support is public education,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, the School Superintendents Association. “There is no better time than now to speak out about the outstanding contributions made by our public schools. With the mounting changes in the education landscape, Public Schools Week creates a platform for Americans to express their feelings toward public school systems and why their success is a key determinant when it comes to our country’s future.”
