My Child My Voice 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 special movie screening of Miss Virginia and will be hosted at National Civil Rights Museum Hooks Hyde Hall. Families, students, council members, clergy and community members are welcome to attend! Hailed as a “must-see” movie by USA Today, the film follows a struggling inner-city mother who sacrifices everything to give her son a good education. Unwilling to allow him to stay in a dangerous school, she launches a movement that could save his future—and that of thousands like him.
My Child My Voice is a grassroots, parent-led organization serving Houston Families. We assist parents and provide resources to help become change agents for educational equity in our education system. Our goal is to educate, engage and empower parents and families in order to ensure the highest quality educational experience for all students. My Child My Voice believes that families are crucial to student and school success. Through knowledge building, organizing, and leadership development, we will empower families to overcome educational inequity. They are the active leaders who have a voice and the tools to define, demand, and lead systemic change to transform our public schools.
Started in 2011, National School Choice Week (NSCW) is the world’s largest annual education-related celebration. As a nonpartisan, nonpolitical public awareness effort, NSCW shines a positive spotlight on effective education options for students, families, and communities around the country. From January 26 through February 1, 2020, more than 50,000 independently-planned events will be held in celebration of the Week.
During NSCW, 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.
