Education is an important part of everyone’s life. It gives us the foundation we need for the rest of our lives. But what happens when a child can’t get the education he or she needs? Whether the district schools are under performing or the private schools are too expensive, the result for the child can be devastating. This is where school choice plays an important role and our guest, Andrew Campanella, is here to explain how school choice works. Andrew Campanella is the president of School Choice Week and he has seen first hand the importance of receiving a quality education.
Held every January, National School Choice Week shines a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child. The goal of National School Choice Week (NSCW) is to raise public awareness of all types of education options for children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, online learning, private schools, and homeschooling.
To meet this goal, NSCW encourages schools, organizations, and individuals to hold positive events that celebrate school choice options, while drawing attention to the need for even greater opportunities for children.
