FW: Education Week at United We Serve

Last week President Obama's United We Serve initiative kicked off a series of issue weeks that will shine the spotlight on Americans who are joining with their neighbors to tackle tough challenges through volunteer service. The first highlight was on Community Renewal (http://serve.gov/stories_community.asp), and from July 27-31 the focus will be on Education.
