This January marks the 2nd Annual National School Choice Week. Organizations, educators, activists, politicians, and parents are coming together to stand up for better education. This week-long event will take place from January 22-28, 2012.
Given the corrupt nature of teachers unions and the lack of attention allotted to student needs in schools, it is imperative to encourage more school choice legislation and programs all across the nation.
Below is a promo ad for the event.
Here is more information from NSCW’s Andrew Campanella :
