Governor Brown Proclaims Jan. 21-27 “Oregon School Choice Week”; Joins Leaders Nationwide in Celebrating Opportunity in Education

Oregon students, communities to hold more than 300 events as part of nation’s largest-ever celebration of school choice

SALEM, Ore.--()--Gov. Brown has proclaimed Jan. 21-27 to be Oregon School Choice Week. She joins dozens of other governors and hundreds of state and county leaders in issuing official proclamations for the week.

Oregonians have planned more than 300 events to celebrate opportunity in education and raise awareness of the types of educational opportunities that parents have, or want to have, for their children. The school fairs, rallies, coffeehouse meetups, festivals, and roundtable discussions are designed to spark conversations about school choice.

More than 32,000 independently planned events will take place nationwide.

“We’re excited to see the enthusiasm for school choice growing in Oregon and across the country,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “We’re grateful that Gov. Brown has issued this proclamation to raise awareness of this important issue.”

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.
