FRANKFORT, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Governor Matt Bevin has proclaimed Jan. 22-28 as School Choice Week in
Kentucky. 14 other governors and more than 500 mayors and county leaders
have issued similar proclamations.
The largest-ever celebration of opportunity in education, National
School Choice Week 2017 will feature more than 21,000 events, including
more than 350 in Kentucky, seeking to start conversations about the
options parents have, or want to have, for their children. Events
include rallies, roundtable discussions, coffeehouse meet-ups,
festivals, school fairs, and more.
“We are glad Governor Bevin has officially proclaimed School Choice Week
in Kentucky to honor the hundreds of events planned in his state,” said
Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “Kentucky
parents, like parents everywhere, want more options for their children’s
education. We hope their enthusiasm for choice will be heard!”
Held every January, National School Choice Week is a nonpartisan,
nonpolitical, 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.
