Public schools are the best place for kids to learn

Public schools are where childhood happens, where imaginations are inspired and where the leaders of tomorrow grow their strengths and talents as they get prepared to take on the world.

That is why for parents, students and educators alike there is no other time of year that brings the joy and possibility of a new school year. This is the time for children to reunite with old friends and make new ones. A time to set goals and take on new challenges with the guidance and support of the superheroes we call public educators.

At the Florida Education Association, we know that public schools are the best place for students to learn and grow, and we want to be sure that you have the resources you need to get the 2021-22 school year off to the best possible start.
