Various events, including a whistle stop train tour are occurring this week as part of National Choice Week.
Planned by a diverse and nonpartisan coalition of individuals and organizations, National School Choice Week features special events and activities that highlight support for school choice programs and proposals. The effort is a collaboration of more than 200 partner organizations, which each use the week to advance their own messages of educational opportunity while uniting with like-minded organizations across the country.
National School Choice Week believes that parents should be empowered to choose the best educational environments for their children and supports a variety of school choice options -- from encouraging increased access to great public schools, to public charter schools, magnet schools, virtual schools, private schools, homeschooling and more.
3,600 events have been planned across the nation. You can go here to find an event near you.
The train tour winds up this Saturday, Feb. 2 in New York, NY. You can find out more here.
