School Choice Week Celebrates Expanded School Options
If there’s one thing most families agree on, it’s that parents should be able to decide what’s best for their children. Why should selecting a school be any different? If you feel strongly about having options for your child’s education, consider sharing your opinion by participating in National School Choice Week, January 25–31, 2015.
Although people have previously rallied for the right to pick the school their children attend, this marks the first time that National School Choice Week has been recognized officially with a bipartisan resolution from the United States Senate. According to organizers, the event was created to “shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for children,” including traditional public and private schools, charter and magnet schools, online learning, blended learning, and homeschooling.
This year, in addition to more than 11,000 events planned nationwide, families of Connections Academy and Nexus Academy students are showing their school pride by posting their reasons for supporting school choice on Facebook. We welcome you to join the conversation!
