All our Nation’s children deserve the chance to be successful, to live fulfilling lives, and to give back to our communities. As parents, teachers, and advocates, we recommit to ensuring that all children in America have a meaningful opportunity to harness their full potential. Parents and guardians are the best advocates for their children’s success. Through engagement with teachers and local school boards, parents have the power to shape their children’s education. The importance of family and community involvement is why I signed an Executive Order earlier this year to protect and preserve State and local control over the curriculum, administration, and personnel of our country’s schools. Moreover, we must protect parents’ access to a wide range of high-quality educational choices, including strong public, charter, magnet, private, online, parochial, and homeschool options. Each child is precious and unique, and we must enable our communities to provide a range of schooling options, which will allow students to thrive and prepare them to be successful in adulthood. My Administration understands that the quality of our Nation’s education shapes our future. We must equip students with the tools and skills they need to succeed in the workforce of tomorrow. In September, I directed the Department of Education to prioritize increasing high-quality education programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for students across our Nation. Additionally, I signed an Executive Order to make it easier for companies to provide much needed apprenticeship programs. By promoting lifelong learning and continuing to ensure relevant postsecondary education is more accessible to students, we can help all Americans achieve their dreams. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with PRES DOCS This week, we also reiterate the vital importance of family involvement in education.

I commend our Nation’s schools, their teachers and leaders, and the parents of students across this land. And I call on States and communities to support high-quality education to meet the needs of all students.

                Proclamation 9675 of November 10, 2017

                
American Education Week, 2017

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During American Education Week, we recognize that the 
                foundation of the American Dream is a quality education 
                that instills lifelong skills and develops strong 
                character. All our Nation's children deserve the chance 
                to be successful, to live fulfilling lives, and to give 
                back to our communities. As parents, teachers, and 
                advocates, we recommit to ensuring that all children in 
                America have a meaningful opportunity to harness their 
                full potential.

                Parents and guardians are the best advocates for their 
                children's success. Through engagement with teachers 
                and local school boards, parents have the power to 
                shape their children's education. The importance of 
                family and community involvement is why I signed an 
                Executive Order earlier this year to protect and 
                preserve State and local control over the curriculum, 
                administration, and personnel of our country's schools. 
                Moreover, we must protect parents' access to a wide 
                range of high-quality educational choices, including 
                strong public, charter, magnet, private, online, 
                parochial, and homeschool options. Each child is 
                precious and unique, and we must enable our communities 
                to provide a range of schooling options, which will 
                allow students to thrive and prepare them to be 
                successful in adulthood.

                My Administration understands that the quality of our 
                Nation's education shapes our future. We must equip 
                students with the tools and skills they need to succeed 
                in the workforce of tomorrow. In September, I directed 
                the Department of Education to prioritize increasing 
                high-quality education programs in science, technology, 
                engineering, and mathematics for students across our 
                Nation. Additionally, I signed an Executive Order to 
                make it easier for companies to provide much needed 
                apprenticeship programs. By promoting lifelong learning 
                and continuing to ensure relevant postsecondary 
                education is more accessible to students, we can help 
                all Americans achieve their dreams.

                This week, we also reiterate the vital importance of 
                family involvement in education. Whether that means 
                checking homework, setting high expectations, or 
                establishing healthy evening and morning routines, 
                schools rely on families to accelerate student 
                achievement. When families devote time and effort to 
                their children's education, students earn higher 
                grades, have more positive attitudes about school and 
                homework, and are more likely to graduate. There can be 
                no greater investment than into the success of our 
                children.

                As we celebrate American Education Week, we are 
                reminded of the vital importance of education for our 
                children, for our communities, and for our world. 
                Education unlocks a world of opportunity, something 
                every American deserves.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, 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 12 through 
                November 18, 2017, as American Education Week. I 
                commend our Nation's schools, their teachers and 
                leaders, and the parents of students across this land. 
                And I call on States and communities to support high-
                quality education to meet the needs of all students.
