Alexandria, Va. – July 19, 2017 – On behalf of the 50 million students attending America’s public schools, AASA, The School Superintendents Association, announced the launch of its I Love Public Education campaign, an ongoing effort to highlight the success of public education and demonstrate why public schools continue to develop future generations of successful students.

“As the national organization for the school superintendents who lead our public schools, AASA is in the best position to lead the dialogue about our love—and the importance of this love—for public education,” said Daniel A. Domenech, AASA executive director. “Our I Love Public Education campaign is a direct extension of our commitment to ensuring all students have access to a high quality public education.

Today’s announcement came last week at AASA’s 2017 Legislative Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C. where hundreds of superintendents—America’s foremost thought leaders in public education—discussed critical issues facing our schools. During the meeting, AASA’s Governing Board drafted, finalized and adopted the official resolution in support of the campaign.
