OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Joining more than a dozen governors and more than 500 city and county
leaders nationwide, Gov. Mary Fallin has proclaimed Jan. 22-28 School
Choice Week in the state of Oklahoma.
National School Choice Week 2017 will feature more than 21,000
independently planned events, including nearly 200 in Oklahoma. Events
include rallies, roundtable discussions, coffeehouse meet-ups,
festivals, school fairs, and more.
Breaking records, National School Choice Week 2017 will be the
largest-ever celebration of opportunity in education.
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.
“We are grateful that Gov. Fallin has issued this proclamation,” said
Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “The Sooner
State is an important place to spark conversations about educational
opportunity – what opportunities exist and what opportunities parents
want to exist.”
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.
