National School Choice Week Hits Wisconsin
Governor Scott Walker has signed a proclamation officially recognizing this week as “Wisconsin School Choice Week.” Governor Walker is joining more than 20 other U.S. governors in issuing a National School Choice Week proclamation.
In a press release we learned that the purpose for National School Choice Week is to highlight all effective education options for children. Participants in National School Choice Week events in Wisconsin and across the country say they believe that children deserve greater access to educational options – from high-performing public schools to public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online learning, and homeschooling.
With 91 events being held to celebrate the Week in Wisconsin alone – and with 3,500 total events spanning all 50 states – National School Choice Week is the world’s largest-ever celebration of education reform. Events include everything from rallies to roundtable discussions, coffeehouse meet-ups, festivals, school fairs, and more. Events include a major rally in Milwaukee, where National School Choice Week’s whistle-stop train tour will make a stop on Jan. 30.
