Operation Educate the Educators Event During the Month of the Military Child

Military Children Focus of Operation Educate the Educators Event During the Month of the Military Child


To celebrate the Month of the Military Child and as part of her Joining Forces initiative, Dr. Jill Biden, a lifelong educator and military mom, will participate in two events in support of military children’s education. Dr. Mary Keller, president and CEO of the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC), will participate in both events.

On Monday, April 11 at 1:30 PM ET, Dr. Biden will deliver remarks at the American Association of Education Researchers Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.—the largest gathering of education researchers in the world—on the importance of recognizing and supporting military-connected students in the classroom.

On Wednesday, April 13, Dr. Biden, in collaboration with the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) and the University of Southern California (USC), will convene educators, stakeholders and influencers at the White House to discuss the progress of Operation Educate the Educators, and to lay out the next steps to sustain and grow this important initiative on behalf of military families. At 11:00 AM ET, Dr. Biden will be joined by Secretary of Education John King to deliver closing remarks at the convening in the South Court Auditorium at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

The Military Child Education Coalition serves the children of those who serve us all and encourages efforts that strengthen our military children and ensure opportunities for their quality education.
