Celebrate National School Choice Week

This week, a collaboration of over 200 organizations will hold the second annual National School Choice Week.

National School Choice Week highlights the need for effective education opportunities for all children. To highlight the importance of school choice and educational outcomes, numerous special events, activities, and media coverage are taking place to inform individuals of all educational opportunities available to students. The week allows a mix of alternative education groups to relay their message: allow individuals the freedom to choose the best educational setting to achieve success.

The Franklin Center is live blogging from around the country promoting National School Choice Week, highlighting states making inroads toward school choice.

The Association of American Educators (AAE) is premiering their teacher choice in action video in honor of National School Choice Week. On January 23 at the Columbia Club Indianapolis, AAE and Indiana Public Charters Associations will present the film. AAE’s film examines teachers who have taken the educational path less traveled. The video portrays teachers from a variety of settings: online, parochial, charter, and traditional schools. Here’s the promo:
