BOISE, Idaho--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Governor C. L. “Butch” Otter has proclaimed Jan. 22-28 as Idaho School
Choice Week. Fully 14 other governors and more than 500 mayors and
county leaders have made similar proclamations.
More than 21,000 independently planned events will take place around the
country during National School Choice Week, including more than 150
events in Idaho. Events include rallies, roundtable discussions,
coffeehouse meet-ups, festivals, school fairs, and more.
National School Choice Week, the largest-ever celebration of opportunity
in education, is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical effort seeking to raise
awareness about of the school choice options parents have, or want to
have, for their children.
“We are thrilled that Idaho will be officially celebrating School Choice
Week 2017,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice
Week. “More and more, we are hearing from parents who want more
educational opportunities for their children, and it’s been exciting to
watch the school choice movement gain momentum.”
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.
