Public Education Day is on 28th May
19 May 2020
Public education is a public good. In schools, preschools and TAFE we celebrate diversity, creativity, respect and the right of every child to access a high quality education.
Public education brings together children and young people from a range of diverse backgrounds, and creates a cohesive community which works as one to create equity, hope, and opportunity.It provides lifelong benefits to students through access to education, improved health, wellbeing and employment.
Governments have a central role in strengthening public education systems through long-term investment focused on overcoming inequality. This requires increasing education funding and targeting resources to where they are needed most.
Please join us on Twitter and Facebook, as well as here on our website, in the lead-up over the next week to celebrate this special day - we’ve got lots planned.
On Public Education Day recognise and celebrate public education and acknowledge and thank principals, teachers and education support staff in our public schools, preschools and TAFEs. Please click on the link below to download a poster to promote Public Education Day in your workplace.
