OESE Back-to-School Success Stories

The U.S Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, and the Assistant Secretary for the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), Frank Brogan, have spent the past few months discussing the importance of returning to school. OESE also hosted a series of webinars discussing best practices and successful strategies employed by schools all over the country to return America’s students to learning. Below you will find testimonials written and submitted by parents, teachers, school officials, and community members sharing their positive experience bringing students back to school.
