Held every January, National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness effort designed to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child. Supporters of school choice will come together for a breakfast at the Idaho State Capitol to kick off School Choice Week in the state on Monday, January 23.
At 9:00 am, parents, students, teachers, principals from nearly every school option will come together to celebrate school choice. Leaders in the school choice movement will come together to forecast goals for next year and celebrate the opportunities already available to Idaho students.
The goal of the event is to demonstrate unprecedented support of school choice in the Gem State. The Idaho kick-off is timed to coincide with National School Choice Week (January 22-28, 2017), which will feature more than 20,000 events across the country.
“Our kick-off breakfast at the capitol will spotlight school choice as we begin a new year full of new opportunities,” said Briana LeClaire of the Idaho Federation of Independent Schools. “We expect a great dialogue between those who support and advocate for greater access to opportunity for every student to take place.”
“We look forward to turning the state’s attention to the importance of an excellent education. There are so many fantastic schools, teachers, and leaders in Idaho working tirelessly on behalf of Idahoan students, and we use this Week to thank them and highlight their hard work,” said Terry Ryan of Bluum
Event planners consist of a large coalition of school choice supporters including Bluum, Idaho Charter School Network, Northwest Professional Educators, Idaho Federation of Independent Schools, and many public and private schools across the state.
