Alabama Opportunity Scholarship Fund is excited to announce that they will be celebrating National School Choice Week (January 26-February 1, 2020) with a special spotlight event!
The event will feature a legislative breakfast at The Westin Hotel in Huntsville. This will be a time for parents to talk with legislators about school choice, as well as for schools to advocate the importance of school choice. We will be bringing legislators in to hear the stories from the source – the parents – who use our scholarships to attend the schools of their choice. We will have some students talk, some administrators talk, and some officials talk about school options.
The Alabama Opportunity Scholarship Fund was established in 2013 and provides tax credited scholarships to low-income K-12 children across Alabama to attend the public or private school of their choice.
Started in 2011, National School Choice Week is the world’s largest annual education-related celebration. The goal of NSCW, which features participation from tens of thousands of schools and organizations, is to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for children.
During National School Choice Week, schools across America celebrate the challenging, motivating, and effective education they provide to students. At the same time, parents use the week to learn more about the education options available to their children, in advance of the upcoming school year.
National School Choice Week is nonpartisan and nonpolitical, and is not related to any legislative advocacy efforts.
