H. Res. 879

                In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

                                                         June 17, 2010.
Whereas the National Education Association has designated November 14 through 
        November 20, 2010, as the 89th annual observance of American Education 
Whereas public schools are the backbone of the Nation's democracy, providing 
        young people with the tools they need to maintain the Nation's precious 
        values of freedom, civility, and equality;
Whereas by equipping young people in the United States with both practical 
        skills and broader intellectual abilities, public schools give them hope 
        for, and access to, a productive future;
Whereas people working in the field of public education, be they teachers, 
        higher education faculty and staff, custodians, substitute educators, 
        bus drivers, clerical workers, food service professionals, workers in 
        skilled trades, health and student service workers, security guards, 
        technical employees, or librarians, work tirelessly to serve children 
        and communities throughout the Nation with care and professionalism; and
Whereas public schools are community linchpins, bringing together adults, 
        children, educators, volunteers, business leaders, and elected officials 
        in a common enterprise: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) supports the goals and ideals of American Education Week; and
            (2) encourages the people of the United States to observe National 
        Education Week by reflecting on the positive impact of all those who 
        work together to educate children.
