May 6th begins Teacher Appreciation Week: Here is a great way to say “thank you.”

Published by

May 6 begins Teacher Appreciation Week. Across the nation, teachers have been courageously standing up for their profession, their students and public schools.

We would like to help you make Teacher Appreciation Week special for the teachers you care about the most.

So many of you generously give to the Network for Public Education Action, and we appreciate your donations, large or small. Without your donations, we cannot do our work fighting privatization and standing up for teachers, students and public schools.

For any donation of $15 or more that we receive from today until the end of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 10), we will send a special note to the teacher of your choice and tell them that you made a donation to help save public education in their name.

All you need to do is tell us who you want to honor, along with their email address.

If you donate $50, Diane will send them a personal letter via the mail thanking them for the work they do. We will need the teacher’s name and address, along with a special remark about the teacher, that you can provide with your donation.

If you donate $100 or more, we will send the teacher an autographed copy of The Wisdom and Wit of Diane Ravitch, a collection of her best essays and blogs. We will need the teacher’s name and address that you provide with your donation.

Even if you choose not to participate, don’t forget to honor teachers you cherish with a card, email or call. Betsy DeVos may not appreciate our public school teachers, but here at the Network we hold them dear.
