National Support Public Education Day
July 30, 2022
National Support Public Education Day is celebrated on July 30th. This day demonstrates how important children are for a country’s future. Another purpose of this holiday is to once again point out that education is one of the most important rights of every person. A nation can develop only if all its citizens are educated. Only an educated society understands which industries require development. The country annually increases the number of available scholarships, and this opens up access to quality education.
National Support Public Education Day was first celebrated in 2010, but the education system has deeper and more ancient roots. Many historical records confirm that schools appeared in ancient Egypt in 2000 BC, when Mentuhotep II ruled. Education in schools was available only to rich, wealthy families and only to men. The women did housework. Gradually the situation changed, as many more people wanted to become literate. Thanks to the Prophet Muhammad, Islamic women received the right to study.
The founding fathers of America did their best to ensure society became more literate, and public schools appeared. School education should teach decision making, critical thinking, empathy, and developing emotional intelligence.
- According to statistics, students in public schools get the same or better scores as those in private schools.
- Public school teachers hold college degrees, a requirement for teachers in all states.
- Public schools are more accepting when it comes to enrolling children – more than 46% of them are African American.
- In public institutions, there are many more extra-curricular activities than in private ones, and here parents are actively involved in the lives of the children.
