The California State Senate issued a proclamation recognizing Jan. 21 through Jan. 27 as California School Choice Week. Dozens of governors and hundreds of city and county leaders nationwide have issued similar proclamations.
In California, more than 2,300 events have been planned to raise awareness about educational opportunity. The rallies, roundtable discussions, coffeehouse meet-ups, festivals, school fairs, and more are aimed to spark conversations about school choices that parents have, or want to have, for their children.
Nationwide, 32,000 School Choice Week events will take place.
“We are grateful to the California Senate for this resolution,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “It’s amazing to see the momentum and enthusiasm that California parents have for choice. We hope they will use this opportunity to find the best schools for their kids.”
Held every January, National School Choice Week is an independent, nonpartisan, nonpolitical public awareness effort designed to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child. Through thousands of independently planned events across the country, National School Choice Week raises public awareness of all types of educational choices available to children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, online learning, private schools, and homeschooling.
