The educators who guide them deserve our highest admiration, respect, and support for investing in young people’s futures. We all have a stake in public education, and we all have a role to play—from parents and mentors to community leaders and business owners.

Because none of these plans will succeed without outstanding teachers, we must support these professionals as they perform their vital work.

                Proclamation 9058 of November 15, 2013

                
American Education Week, 2013

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Education is both a pillar of democracy and a 
                cornerstone of American opportunity. In an increasingly 
                competitive world, it gives our children the tools to 
                thrive and our Nation the talent to lead. During 
                American Education Week, we reaffirm our commitment to 
                the next generation, and we celebrate everyone who is 
                striving to help America's young people realize their 
                full potential.

                Every day throughout America, our children mark the 
                many milestones of learning--from scribbling their 
                first attempts at the alphabet to conducting their 
                first science experiment to crossing the stage at 
                commencement. The educators who guide them deserve our 
                highest admiration, respect, and support for investing 
                in young people's futures. We all have a stake in 
                public education, and we all have a role to play--from 
                parents and mentors to community leaders and business 
                owners. Through programs focused on tutoring, sports, 
                the arts, and vocational training, we can inspire 
                children to learn both inside and outside the 
                classroom.

                A great education is a ticket into the middle class, 
                and it should be available to everyone willing to work 
                for it. My Administration is committed to reining in 
                college costs and reducing the burden student loans 
                place on young people. We are also moving forward on a 
                plan to connect 99 percent of America's students to 
                high-speed internet within 5 years; pushing to make 
                high-quality early education accessible to every child 
                in America; and working to strengthen programs in 
                science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. 
                Because none of these plans will succeed without 
                outstanding teachers, we must support these 
                professionals as they perform their vital work.

                As we move toward Thanksgiving, American Education Week 
                offers a chance to express our gratitude to educators 
                across our Nation. Let us do so with a renewed 
                commitment to giving every young American the 
                opportunities a world-class education affords.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim November 17 to 
                November 23, 2013, as American Education Week. I call 
                upon all Americans to observe this week by supporting 
                their local schools through appropriate activities, 
                events, and programs designed to help create 
                opportunities for every school and student in America.
