Washington, D.C. —U.S. Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Jon Tester (D-MT) are joining students, teachers, and administrators from across the country to celebrate Public Schools Week, a nationwide initiative to highlight the importance of America’s public education system. Senators Collins and Tester are leading the Senate resolution designating this week (February 24 – 28) as Public Schools Week.
“During my Senate service, I have had the pleasure of visiting more than 200 schools throughout Maine, and I have seen an inspiring commitment to excellence that is shared by dedicated educators and staff, involved family and community members, and enthusiastic students,” said Senator Collins. “Public schools have had a profound impact on our nation’s history and continue to shape our future, as they both inspire students and give them tools to achieve their dreams. This week, we recognize the more than 100,000 public schools across America that play a vital role in shaping the lives of our nation’s youth.”
