CHAPTER 310 - STATE OF DELAWARE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION
WHEREAS, the week beginning November 9, 1936, has been set aside and designated as American Education Week. No observance in America is more significant and no institution has a more crucial responsibility for the future of American democracy than the public school, and
WHEREAS, the topic for American Education Week this year is "Our American Schools at Work." During the observance of this week, millions of American citizens will be afforded an opportunity to restudy and investigate one of the world's largest businesses and an excellent opportunity will be provided to increase the appreciation of pupils for their educational advantages.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, C. D. Buck, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the week of November 9 to 15 as
AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK
and urge all the citizens of the State of Delaware to endeavor to acquaint themselves with the methods of our educational system. Visit your schools--for it is only through the interest and cooperation of all the people that our present high standard of education can be maintained. Democracy will succeed in America only if the general level of intelligence is sufficiently high to deal effectively with the problems facing the Nation.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Delaware to be hereunto affixed, at Dover, this fifteenth day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-six.
By the Governor:
C. D. BUCK.
WALTER DENT SMITH, Secretary of State.
