This Year's Resolution: Support Public Schools

The Learning First Alliance wants to show our members of Congress, state representatives and community members why strong public schools are vital to our nation's future.

As educators, teachers, administrators and parents, we need YOUR signature and your commitment (as well as those from your family and friends) to help us show LFA videohow many people support public education in their communities. We will present these signatures during the third annual Public Schools Week, to be held Feb. 24-28, 2020, to show them the promise and potential of our public schools and what we need to educate all our students to their greatest potential. Watch our video then go to to add your name and school or community. (Closed captioned video available here).

Once you've signed the Pledge, here are three ways your school can celebrate Public Schools Week 2020:

  1. Ask parents, community members, and local leaders to take the Pledge for Public Schools at, and share on social media using hashtags #PublicSchoolProud, #PSW20 and #PublicSchoolsWeek2020. Download and share the video and check out our social media toolkit for more ideas.
  2. Help celebrate all that public school educators do for our students–give some small token of recognition to your staff and supporters, and share stories from your school with parents and on social media.
  3. Look at your calendar and see if your school or district could host or will be holding an event this winter that you could tie to Public Schools Week 2020.
Learn more, register your events, or sign up as a supporter at, and please contact us at with any questions.
