DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Governor Hickenlooper has proclaimed Jan. 22-28 as School Choice Week in
Colorado, joining 14 other governors and more than 500 city and county
leaders nationwide in issuing similar proclamations.
National School Choice Week 2017 will be the largest-ever celebration of
opportunity in education. More than 21,000 independently planned events
will commemorate the Week, including more than 500 in Colorado. 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 of the school choice options parents have, or
want to have, for their children.
“Thanks to Gov. Hickenlooper, School Choice Week is official in
Colorado,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice
Week. “Parents in Colorado, like parents everywhere, want the best
education possible for their children. We hope they will take School
Choice Week as an opportunity to explore their options and learn what’s
available – and what they want to be available.”
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.
