ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
There is no ordinary day in our public schools. Great things are happening but often go unnoticed. Extraordinary teaching and learning and acts of heroism taking place during every hour, every day, every year.
The Stand Up campaign provides the public with a more accurate and thorough perspective of public education by capturing the ordinary, yet extraordinary activities and the dauntless and bold actions of educators – teachers, administrators, superintendents, and school board members – that help prepare students for the future. The campaign highlights
the creativity that is prevalent in our public schools, which produces unique and amazing activities and outcomes every day. It reveals the true teaching and learning in public schools and it provides a means for people to demonstrate support for their schools.
The day-in-the-life-of our public schools is inspirational. The teaching and learning that takes place demonstrates that no day in a public school is “typical.” Indeed, every day is a special day.
The story of public schools is full of rich stories that accentuate that every day is unique. A student in No Ordinary Day explains that his public school education "makes a difference in my life". Multiply that wonderful acknowledgement by the millions and the public will gain a more accurate picture of our public schools. Please share initiatives that demonstrate the innovation taking place in your community and the difference makers in your public schools so we can paint the full picture of public schools. We hope to hear from you!.
