GOVERNOR RICKETTS PROCLAIMS JAN. 21-27 “NEBRASKA SCHOOL CHOICE WEEK”; JOINS LEADERS NATIONWIDE IN CELEBRATING OPPORTUNITY IN EDUCATION
Nebraska students, communities to hold more than 200 events as part of nation’s largest-ever celebration of school choice
Governor Ricketts has proclaimed Jan. 21-27 to be Nebraska School Choice Week. He joins more than a dozen other governors and more than 500 city and county leaders nationwide in issuing similar proclamations.
Nebraskans have planned more than 200 events to celebrate opportunity in education during National School Choice week. They join Americans across the country with a total of 32,000 School Choice Week celebrations, events, and activities – including rallies, roundtable discussions, coffeehouse meet-ups, receptions, festivals, school fairs, and more – which will spark conversations about opportunity in education.
“We thank Gov. Ricketts for issuing this proclamation and making School Choice Week official in Nebraska,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “Like parents everywhere, Nebraska parents only want the best for their children. We hope School Choice Week gives them an opportunity to find the best – the best school or educational setting – that works for their families.”
Held every January, National School Choice Week is an independent, nonpartisan, nonpolitical 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.
