FEA event to celebrate American Education Week

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Education Association (FEA) will celebrate public education and educators with a gathering at its Tallahassee office on Tuesday, Nov. 16, as part of American Education Week. Lawmakers and members of the media are invited to this free event, which is open to the public.

“For us, every day is a great day to celebrate public schools, our students and all the dedicated teachers and education staff professionals working to educate Florida’s students,” said FEA President Andrew Spar. “With the special legislative session coinciding with American Education Week, Nov. 16 seems like the perfect time to invite the public to join us in lifting up education and the great work going on in our schools. If there’s one issue that can bring us all together, it’s that we should do what’s right for kids. The great majority of Florida voters agree, our students deserve strong public schools.”
