City Council Proclaims Jan. 22-28 “West Hollywood School Choice Week”; Joins Leaders Nationwide in Celebrating Opportunity in Education
California students, communities to hold more than 1,700 events as part of nation’s largest-ever celebration of school choice
WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA – Joining more than a dozen governors and more than 500 city and county leaders nationwide, the West Hollywood City Council has officially proclaimed Jan. 22-28 as West Hollywood School Choice Week.
Mayor Lauren Meister and Councilmembers signed the proclamation.
National School Choice Week 2017 will prove to be the largest celebration of opportunity in education in U.S. history, with more than 21,000 independently planned events across the country, including more than 1,700 in California. Events include rallies, roundtable discussions, coffeehouse meet-ups, festivals, school fairs, and more.
National School Choice Week is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical effort seeking to raise awareness about the school choice options parents have, or want to have, for their children.
“With so many events going on in California, we are excited and grateful that School Choice Week is official in West Hollywood,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “Like parents everywhere, West Hollywood parents want their kids to have a great education – and celebrating the diversity of educational options is what School Choice Week is all about.”
Held every January, National School Choice Week is an independent 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.
